Fibromyalgia, fibrositis, fibromyositis, trigger point, myofascial pain syndrome, cervicobrachial pain syndrome - to name several - and related disorders belong to an extremely common constellation of nerve, muscular and skeletal diseases and disorders afflicting humans. They share the same origin and path leading to complex and diverse symptoms, manifestations and illnesses. Enigma Unraveled brings together the information derived from basic and clinical sciences, thereby uniquely providing a scientific explanation for the origin and biomechanism of fibromyalgia.
