For those living with this condition, nearly every aspect of their life is in some way affected. Because fibromyalgia is a chronic condition, it can be exhausting and frustrating for the sufferer. This inevitably will reach into how they react to those around them. Family and friends do well, therefore, to have an understanding of the condition. This can help strengthen relationships and result in the needed support.
Fibromyalgia involves the nervous system and heightens the body's response to stimuli. There are two conditions that are commonly associated with this phenomenon, Hyperesthesia and Allodynia.
Hyperesthesia occurs when the central nervous system greatly increases a person's sensitivity to things like pain, sound, sight and the like.
Allodynia is a similar condition. However, it does not require a stimulus to feel pain. That means that pain may be felt but with nothing actually there to cause that pain.
Sleep plays a vital role in a person's well-being. This is especially true for those who suffer from fibromyalgia. Unfortunately, what is termed restorative sleep is sometimes fleeting for those with fibromyalgia. More than just the quantity of sleep, restorative sleep involves the quality or restfulness of that sleep. This is usually a result of excessive sensitivity to the world around them.
