There is still no verifiable indication of the causes or factors of the development of fibromyalgia. A number of theories are present but unfortunately, none of them is necessary to evidence to prove the facts of this disorder. Women being more affected than men, this disorder overall affects almost two percent of the population.
- Muscular stiffness
- Chronic fatigue
- Mood disturbances
- Sleeping disorder (insomnia)
- Tenderness of specific locations
One very important factor that has been under quite a bit of research is painful experiences that are felt during childhood. These pain experiences cause long-term adaptation in the processing of pain by the brain. Proper treatments are needed by the infants that are born with some specific sickness or children with premature births or those born under stressful situations.
Newborns are likely to be subjected to many painful procedures in the clinical stages of neonatal intensive care that have the possibility of being performed daily with routine monitoring. Such newborns that need early hospitalization could have to face fourteen very painful procedures per day.
Children may have negative effects and experience significant changes in brains for processing of the pain due to the long-lasting high frequency of such procedures. The abnormal processing of pain in patients facing this disorder is the result of such infant abnormalities.
By providing necessary pain management techniques to neonatal patients such Physiological disturbances can be prevented. The pain management techniques to accomplish levels of pain are not easily affordable.
Morphine and some benzodiazepines treatments are used for pain experienced after surgery and for general sedation for neonates. Some non-medical techniques that could be administered to neonates including sucrose are helpful.
According to studies for long-term chronic exposure, such techniques don’t work that efficiently. The adequate amounts of pain management for neonates should be discovered to reduce various types of pain syndromes, including fibromyalgia is still under discussion and research.
Lack of warmth and motherhood relation is a major risk factor for future development of fibromyalgia according to research. The child-mother bond states the emotional reactivity of the child throughout their life and the type of relations that will be created with others.
A strong mother-baby relation has proven to be fruitful for the healthy development of the baby. A weak and improper relation results in consistent chronic pain and issues of coping with chronic pain. According to studies, those patients will have intense levels of pain who have constant ignoring and emotionless relations.
Patients show high even unbearable levels where there is a very weak and strangely low relation. Adults with healthy bonding styles take acute pain tests and have low-intensity levels. A direct link between the opioidergic and dopamine system and a person’s living environment has been shown and this study suggests that when a parent and infant are strongly attached, the child has far fewer possibilities of getting affected by such disorders.
Children who experience physical and sexual abuse are more likely to develop fibromyalgia. Early life abuse results in a number of behavioral problems and types of pathological issues. Like heavy depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse, alcoholism, stoutness, and even suicide.
Unfortunately, the same problems are associated with fibromyalgia. Several studies have shown a link between childhood abuse and early life traumas with fibromyalgia. These links also elaborate disruption of neurotransmitter systems that will affect a person’s capacity to manage stress.
When early age traumas, abuses, neonatal complications, and the parent-infant bond strength are considered, fibromyalgia is high to be discussed. However there is no significant evidence to prove this fact, still, the studies and the connections documented in the research can serve as the basis for several future works in this field.
The search for the primary factors for the development of fibromyalgia disorder is constantly under discussion and observation. Persistent efforts are made by researchers to get people aware of the disorder. A proper treatment procedure is likely to be discovered after the clear identification of the root cause.
