The first link I'd like to share is: http://psychcentral.com/news/2013/06/19/skin-abnormality-may-prove-biological-basis-for-fibromyalgia/56233.html This story tells of how biopsies done on the hands of female Fibro sufferers revealed an astonishing discovery. Read on to see what they found.
The second link shows that we've not been forgotten by American Medical research.
http://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT01857219 This trial is to be completed in June of 2014. See what they're studying.
The third link shows firm evidence of a brain study published in the Journal of American College of Rheumatology : http://www.anapsid.org/cnd/diagnosis/brainpain.html I've also read of a similar study done in France. Show this to your skeptics who would prefer to believe Fibro is "all in your head". Hmmm, in a sense they might be right LOL.
Recently I contacted Himanshu Kapoor a practicing yogi who has an online site you may contact and ask questions regarding various poses and information about Yoga. I specifically asked him questions regarding Fibromyalgia and helpful poses to use. He was very informative and the two hand poses he recommends for Fibro seem very consistent with some of the information contained in the first link I posted. He also mentions certain dietary restrictions regarding how food is prepared and when certain foods should not be eaten as well as 2 other poses besides the hand poses.
