I found this through the National Fibromyalgia Association website. I get alerts on Yahoo! every week. It is a great site that always seems to be very current with research and information.

Anyway, I know a lot of people think these dogs are ugly, but I just love them! I like how they are considered 'hot-dog heating pads'! LOL!

About Fibromyalgia

"Fibromyalgia, a chronic condition characterized by widespread pain, affects 0.5% - 5% of adults worldwide. Fibromyalgia is believed to be a central nervous system condition, resulting from neurological changes in how the brain perceives and responds to pain. In addition to pain, the main symptoms are fatigue, disturbed sleep and morning stiffness.

 

The exact causes of fibromyalgia are unknown. It may be triggered by physical trauma, emotional stress, chronic pain or infection. Genetics, neurochemicals that affect pain modulation, neurohormones and sleep physiology abnormalities are thought to play a role. Research also shows a suggested relationship between sleep and pain. Fibromyalgia patients experience a high prevalence of sleep problems, including a reduction in non-restorative or deep sleep."
