    Researchers have discovered a potential biological basis for fibromyalgia in patients' skin. Current treatment uses medications that act solely within the brain. It brings varying degrees of relief.

    Scientists at Integrated Tissue Dynamics LLD (Intidyn) reported their findings in the journal Pain Medicine. Their work was part of an Albany Medical College study on fibromyalgia. The researchers found a unique pathology in the skin of female patients, one they believe could be the biological basis of the mysterious condition, says Medical News Today.

    According to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), fibromyalgia symptoms can include muscle pain, fatigue, difficulty sleeping, headaches, painful menstrual periods, stiffness in the morning, numbness or tingling in the hands or feet, and cognitive problems sometimes referred to as "fibro fog." The disorder affects around 10 million Americans who are at least 18. Eighty to 90 percent are women, NIAMS says. The Intidyn study included only subjects who were women.
