Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue are two similar syndromes and some unknown experts and against which there is no effective treatment.

Fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue are two syndromes that cause a lot of pain in people who suffer and eventually cause many social problems. These diseases do not have the pain than the visible physical manifestation.


Employees, family and friends suspect that the person is sick and eventually the feeling of rejection and misunderstanding of society. Thus, many of these patients need the support of a treatment psychologist or psychiatrist while sending the rheumatologist, as noted at El Faro Rodríguez Páez Concepción, an expert in this field of Melilla hospital district made

People who suffer from these cases more research is needed to understand the causes and better treatments and a better understanding of citizens and various entities.

The incidence in Melilla

Referring to fibromyalgia Melilla, the number of people affected by this syndrome is similar to other cities, according to Rodriguez Paez. And only he met two people who have chronic fatigue in your queries because it is more difficult to diagnose, although these data can not be extrapolated for comparison with other nationally.

There is a lack of knowledge about these diseases. It produces, or means to relieve pain and eradication are the questions every day, patients and medical specialists. “There is much more research,” said Rodriguez Paez, who said that one of the recent studies that have access and what was done in Seville detailed a drug with improved Q10 above suffering 20 patients who had been tested. However, he noted the lack of information that exists on these diseases in the general level and also by their peers.

Melilla, these patients perceive the changes of time. These days passed from east to west are always more tiring for melilianos have fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue. Paez Rodriguez said that these days coincide with the visit, patients indicate more pain throughout the body.

However, the expert said that there is a factor in these patients no evidence studied at that time. Thus, according to a study in Galicia with a very high sample of patients that are not quoted affect the humidity or the change of time.

  Similar, but not the same

“The main problem is the lack of understanding of people. These people are isolated and should be avoided “, he said. There are few treatments and with this constant feeling in the body, many patients suffer from depression. Therefore Paez Rodriguez stressed the importance of gentle exercise and do not neglect to receive counseling.

Referring to the fibromyalgia syndrome is emphasized that when pain is sustainable and does not generally improve with pain. This syndrome is associated with changes in the brain, in particular, which is not a metabolic disorder of neurotransmitter enzymes. It usually appears in people who have suffered from chronic pain or even a car accident and suffered for a long time. It is under consideration to suffer this pain can change your perception in the brain and cause fibromyalgia. But beyond that, this expert said that not only affect pain modulation, but also affects other systems such as muscle or hormonal.

Another expert advice for these patients is to perform exercises such as yoga or tai chi and have a varied diet of foods. Paez Rodriguez said very frustrating for medical illnesses because they have many weapons to fight them.

The syndromes are not new in medicine 

Rheumatologist Concepcion Rodriguez Paez said Faro these two syndromes have been defined for centuries, although they have been known by other names. In fact, the comments on the case of the famous painter Frida Calo, who expressed in his paintings like fibromyalgia felt. So she got a job in which she pushes the nail on the body. He even went to the opening of one of his exhibitions in bed to avoid pain
