What the Research Means

Why is the discovery of SFPN in FM important? SFPN has treatable symptoms and quantifiable symptoms and triggers, and it is believed that the driving force behind pain sensation in many FM patients is SFPN. This is important because although there are some treatment protocols in place for FM patients, they seem to offer only minimal relief. The discovery of SFPN in FM opens new modes of treatment for the symptoms of the disease.
