If You Have Fibromyalgia Watch The New TV Commercial For ‘Lyrica’.

Much has changed about the UNDERSTANDING of Fibromyalgia over the last few years.

It is safe to say that Fibromyalgia today is NOT your mother’s Fibromyalgia (75% of those diagnosed with Fibromyalgia being women).

The actual name ‘Fibromyalgia’ is no longer accurate. Fibromyalgia, where ‘algia‘ is Latin for pain means pain to do with fibrous tissue (Fibro) and muscles (myo).

It used to be considered a condition related to rheumatism (or arthritis).

NOT SO ANYMORE.

The ‘American College of Rheumatology’ when talking about the causes of fibromyalgia states: “… it is as though the “volume control” is turned up too high in the brain’s pain processing centers”.

The ‘National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases’ (a member of the U.S. ‘National Institutes of Health’) now says, in the section on ‘causes’: Many researchers are examining other causes, including problems with how the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) processes pain’.

The Lyrica commercial NOW acknowledges this. At the 15 second mark, shown above in the image, it says: “… thought to be the result of overactive nerves”.

BINGO.

At last.

Lyrica, the leading medication used to treat Fibromyalgia finally admitting that Fibromyalgia is a nervous system disorder.

That should help.

The commercial also goes onto say, with more emphasis than ever before, that Lyrica INCREASES DEPRESSION.

Well depression is known to make Fibromyalgia WORSE and that is not anecdotal.

So, if you have Fibromyalgia watch this commercial a FEW times ……

The Term ‘Iron Curtain’ Coined By Winston Churchill, This Day, March 5 — 71 Years Ago.

by Anura Guruge


March 5, 1946,
Winston Churchill, then Leader of the Opposition as of July 26, 1945,
at a speech at Westminster College, Missouri, U.S.A.
(Churchill was NOT knighted until 1953.
So he wasn’t a ‘Sir’ when he gave this speech.)
