The amino acids glutamate and aspartate, found in animal protein (think meat), have been linked to increased pain in fibromyalgia sufferers.
One only needs to look at the historical development of this condition to appreciate the struggles that the medical profession has had with fibromyalgia. The disorder has been around since the antiquities, but was first identified as a condition in 1900 when termed "fibrositis." (13) In the early years, fibrositis was thought to be a psychological condition without any medical or organic basis.
There are no specific anatomic reasons for fibromyalgia, but it is closely associated with post-traumatic stress disorder, physical and mental abuse and chronic fatigue.
There still exists a stigma that fibromyalgia is not a "real" disease, which can be frustrating and isolating for people living with it.
Fibromyalgia is one of the most common conditions causing chronic pain and disability.
"Though fibromyalgia is currently incurable and treatment is limited to exercise, education and antidepressants, an accurate diagnosis has many benefits," said Hackshaw.
Participants were men and women who were diagnosed with fibromyalgia based on the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) 2010 criteria and had a pain score of over 40 out of 100 based on the visual analogue scale (VAS).
Is it fibromyalgia or another chronic pain syndrome?
