Aberrant Cerebral Blood Flow Responses During Cognition: Implications for the Understanding of Cognitive Deficits in Fibromyalgia (abstract only)
Chronic pain: Understanding the roots, finding the cures [good read, informative]
FTA: “The biggest problem in the pain field . . . is recognizing that the most common causes of chronic pain” result from heightened sensitivity, called “centralized pain.” [One expert] sees further evidence in the prevalence of such symptoms as fatigue, pain and disorders of memory and sleep in many chronic pain syndromes."
"Chronic pain often appears after a triggering event, such as an auto accident, infection or fighting in war. A person who develops fibromyalgia after such a trigger “did not start with fibromyalgia,” Clauw says. “That person started with headache, painful menstruation, pain in other areas, and the auto accident was … the final trigger that precipitated the full-blown fibromyalgia. I have never seen a fibromyalgia patient who did not start with regional pain earlier in life, in different areas. They will have headache for couple of years, pain in other areas for a couple of years…. They will move through life with different areas of chronic pain, until some stressor triggers something like fibromyalgia. This is what happened in the first Gulf war; there was an epidemic of chronic pain — called Gulf War Syndrome. I was heavily involved in that research.”

Now that's something I could never, ever do, Cym ... sell anything ... just don't have that lightbulb in my genetic string... on the other hand, I'm totally content digging and rummaging around in books and the internet and databases looking for information that might be helpful to folks ... loved being a reference librarian, different questions every day ...
but sell something, hell no ... in high school I was in the band, and we had to sell chocolate bars to help raise money for new band uniforms .... I didn't sell any of mine because I couldn't bring myself to ask anyone to buy one ... so, I used all the money I'd saved up from babysitting and secretly bought all of them from myself ...I even won the prize for "most sales" ... (oh the irony) ... no wonder I had acne and was chubby ...
