This is why he doesn't believe in pressure points. Theory is Fibro is a chemical imbalance between Adrenelin and Seretonin. Thus the sleep problems, not enough seretonin being produced by the body and not being stored properly. Adreniline not being used properly. Of all the reasons for the cause of Fibro, this makes sense to me. So who knows.
I find this very interesting. I have noticed going through perimenopause that this is a signficant problem regarding the adrenaline and the seretonin in my body. I have had a very soar neck upon awakening, soar back, although I had a car accident, it's hard to relate or put it all together here. But I can go back before the car accident and see that there were times I had problems with my immune system, fatigue, body pain especially with change of weather. Pains in the joints, etc. Now I have the muscle tremors in my hands and the muscle spasms. Went through the insomnia part, still have that occasionally. I need to figure this out. What good doctors are available in Chicago for detecting if you have FM? I'm currently taking a low dosage of Prozac, 10mg. I split it in half and take 5mg. It is helping. Wasn't depressed just anxious. I wish these jerks in my fingers would stop. It drives me crazy to type lately.
