Abstract Although the life-course concept of risk markers as potential etiological influences is well established in epidemiology, it has not featured in academic publications or clinical practice in the context of chronic widespread pain (CWP) and fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS). Studies of risk markers are required considerations for evaluation of patients and for research because there is no single cause, pathological feature, laboratory finding, or biomarker for CWP or FMS. The early-life risk markers identified by extensive literature review with best evidence for potential causal influence on the development and...

I was looking back over the last 8 years since the first Wheat Belly book was released. It’s been 8 years of astounding, truly breathtaking stories of success over weight issues, health, and physical transformations that skeptics even today claim are impossible.

Although I’ve seen all of them, often more than once, I could not help but be overcome with satisfaction and pride for the many, many spectacular photos and stories people have shared. So I thought it would be fun to re-post a small sample of some of these stories dating back from the start of th...

In those with abnormal CNFS, tapentadol treatment was without analgesic effect.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

Publication date: Available online 31 May 2019Source: Best Practice &Research Clinical RheumatologyAuthor(s): Winfried Häuser, Gareth JonesAbstractPsychological factors such as adverse childhood experiences, traumatic life events, interpersonal conflicts and psychological distress play an important role in the predisposition, onset and severity of chronic widespread pain (CWP) and fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS). Therefore, psychological therapies might have the potential to reduce disability as well as symptom and economic burden in patients with CWP and FMS.
