Title: Neuroinflammation in fibromyalgia and CRPS is multifactorial
Journal: Nature Reviews Rheumatology 12, 242 (2016)
Excerpt: "Thus, neuroinflammation in fibromyalgia and CRPS has biological contributions including gastrointestinal dysbiosis, vitamin D deficiency, and mitochondrial dysfunction. These independent contributions commonly co-exist, and each of these is additive/synergistic with the others in the promotion of peripheral and central hyperalgesia. The consistent pain-alleviating benefits of treatments for intestinal dysbiosis (antibiotics), vitamin D deficiency (supplementation) and mitochondrial dysfunction (ubiquinone) establish that these painful conditions are multifactorial and maintained by ongoing physiologic insults, each of which is treatable."
