Fibromyalgia patients are more likely to have tingling and weakness in their legs and arms, poor balance and other neurological symptoms according to a new study conducted at the University of Washington Medicine Sleep Institute at Harborview, Seattle.

The research team studied 166 Fibromyalgia patients and 66 people without the condition. All of the participants were examined by a neurologist and they completed a survey on their neurological symptoms. There were 29 neurological categories that were tested.

The results showed that the fibromyalgia group had:
• Significantly more neurologic symptoms in 27 of the 29 categories than the control group.
• Greater dysfunction in certain nerves in the brain.
• More “sensory” problems, motor abnormalities and gait problems.

Here are some of the biggest differences:
• Sensitivity to light, or “photophobia,” which was observed in 70 percent of fibromyalgia patients but in only 6 percent of the controls.
• Poor balance, which was seen in 63 percent of fibromyalgia patients but only 4 percent of controls.
• Weakness and tingling in the arms or legs, seen in more than 50% of fibromyalgia patients but in only around 4 percent of those without the condition.

These findings support several prior studies which appear to confirm that fibromyalgia is a “real” condition and that there may be a “neuroanatomical” cause to the disease.

The findings of the study were published in the latest issue of Arthritis and Rheumatism.

Flexcin with CM8 is helping thousands of people around the nation and even the world find relief from Fibromyalgia in a safe and all-natural solution. The primary component of Flexcin™ is CM8™ (cetyl myristoleate). Of all the ingredients in Flexcin, CM8™ is the most powerful. CM8™ functions in three different ways. First, it acts as a highly effective lubricant in the joints, muscles and other tissues, allowing them to move smoothly. Decrease or loss of morning stiffness is commonly noted shortly after commencing treatment. Next, CM8™ functions as an anti-inflammatory. Relief from swollen joints is often seen after the 4th or 5th week of treatment. Third, it is also an immune system modulator, which can be effectual against autoimmune diseases, such as arthritic conditions. CM8™ relieves joint pain at its source, reducing inflammation and irritation of the joints and tissues. It has been helpful for many sufferers of muscle tension and fibromyalgia. All of these characteristics make CM8™ the most important ingredient in Flexcin.
