Genetic link to pain sensitivity in Fibromyalgia
Saturday 19 May 2012
A new study published in the European Journal of Pain provides further evidence of a genetic component of fibromyalgia. Specifically, researchers linked alternate forms of some specific clusters of genetic material to pain sensitivity in people with fibromyalgia.
Researchers say that not only were participants with fibromyalgia more sensitive to pain than healthy subjects, those among the fibromyalgia group with a certain genetic expression had the highest sensitivity.
So far, it's unknown whether genetic differences such as these are a cause or result of fibromyalgia.
