- There are currently no effective treatments for fibromyalgia, a chronic condition that causes widespread pain, sleep problems, fatigue, and emotional distress.
- The underlying cause has remained a mystery, although some research has hinted at the involvement of the immune system.
- A study has now found that antibodies from people with fibromyalgia induce symptoms of the disease in mice, which strongly suggests that fibromyalgia is an autoimmune disorder.
- The discovery could lead to diagnostic blood tests for the disease and more effective treatments.
