They are the cause of fibromyalgia.

Medical geneticists those 90 conditions of patient DNA, causing symptoms with changes in the immune system and the nervous system of these patients.
Many times have felt misunderstood. Or worse, accused of simulating a disease. But now science proves them right.

And it is that medical producers have discovered that fibromyalgia, a disease of neurological origin, caused by neurochemical imbalances in the central nervous system. Thanks to a study of 3,000 people, two-thirds of those who suffer determined to fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue that 90 polymorphisms in the DNA of patients that affect the immune system and the nervous system.

This study “is the only scientific evidence of genetic markers associated with fibromyalgia,” say the authors, Genomic Genetics International (GGI). “There is ample evidence for this condition be considered as a disease of organic basis, provided it is properly diagnosed,” said Dr. José Ignacio Lao, director of GGI.

The problem of patients suffering from this condition is that your immune system has a tendency to react in an exaggerated manner. Geneticists have the interaction of two genes explain why the painful stimulus was discovered greater in patients with fibromyalgia. There are even other mu opioid receptor gene -called “that makes these people not only experience more physical pain, but also the psychic” uses the director of GGI.

“Let a social rejection or a break of couple of them deeper than other people who have this genetic variant footprint,” he adds. Aside from the pain of fibromyalgia suffering – “on all levels, not only the skeletal muscles,” Lao says they are affected their ability to maintain chemical balance in the brains. Suffer a trend deficit of neurotransmitters-the chemicals in the brains which are responsible for the transmission of nervous thus within the pathology has a tendency to amnesia (early cognitive disorders), depression and sleep disorders, lack serotonin.

“Even for those stressful situations cause outbreaks,” says the director of GGI. IS THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF THE STIGMA? Although fibromyalgia was identified as a disease by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1992 -including within reumatismos in the international classification of disease, many people who have suffered to unreasonably harsh endure simulate stigma of being, in the eyes of others , an ailment.

Although today fibromyalgia has a medical remedy, it is a fact that there is much hope in the field of biotechnology, so to find a definitive solution.

Genetics has been the development of new therapeutic agents. You can even do preventive medicine in families with a history.

And in trusted environments where there is a case of fibromyalgia eightfold the risk that there seem to be more cases, statistics show. In Spain it is estimated that 2.4% of the population suffers from fibromyalgia.

Even cases occur in children, but few who already appears hypersensitivity. In fact, many of the people suffering from the disease of older state that children allergic to certain stimuli.
