However, no evidence was found for an altered attentional processing of pain in patients with FM. Furthermore, results indicate that task interference and distraction efficacy are not just 2 sides of the same coin.

In addition to therapy, medication can be an invaluable treatment for clinical depression. It may alleviate symptoms and literally save lives. Which is why having an array of medications to choose from is vital. Recently, in the U.S., three antidepressants were approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat depression: vilazodone (Viibryd) in 2011; levomilnacipran (Fetzima) in 2013; and vortioxetine (Trintellix; formerly called Brintellix, but renamed to avoid confusion with the blood-thinning medication Brilinta) in 2013.

Over the years, many studies have demonstrated the importance of exercise-induced analgesia in relieving pain caused by different conditions, such as fibromyalgia, low back pain, neuropathy, and osteoarthritis.

Abstract Fibromyalgia is a common disorder and has substantial impact on quality of life. The cause remains unknown, but current evidence points to multifactorial involvement of pain processing. Clinical diagnosis is aided by evidence-based diagnostic criteria with subscores for widespread pain and symptom severity. Nonpharmacologic treatments, including cognitive behavioral therapy, sleep hygiene, and regular aerobic exercise, form the cornerstone of management. Pharmacologic intervention is an important adjunct, but benefit is variable. There is no cure for fibromyalgia at this time, but persistence and patience...

In this study, the effect of the consumption of Annona muricata L. (Annonaceae) leaves (AM) was investigated on a model for intermittent cold stress (ICS)-induced fibromyalgia in mice. An aqueous extract of AM was investigated in experiments involving 60 five-week-old female mice C57BL/6J. The animals were allocated into six groups (n = 10). Groups (I) Healthy control, (II) ICS control, and (III) ICS + acetaminophen (0.5%), were all fed a standard diet, while groups (IV) and (V) received standard diets supplemented with 15% (AM15) and 30% (AM30) aqueous extract of AM leaves, respectively. Group (VI) received a stan...
