Decent arti­cle: What Fibromyal­gia Feels Like

Inter­est­ing paragraph:

Dr.Teitelbaum shares, “Fibromyal­gia rep­re­sents an ‘ener­gy cri­sis’ where the body is spend­ing more ener­gy than it is able to make. When this hap­pens, the area using the most ener­gy for its size mal­func­tions, act­ing like a cir­cuit break­er that has been over­loaded and goes off-line. This is an almond-sized gland in the brain called the hypo­thal­a­mus. It con­trols sleep, caus­ing the para­dox of being unable to sleep despite being exhaust­ed, which is the hall­mark of this con­di­tion. The cir­cuit also con­trols our hor­mon­al sys­tem and auto­nom­ic sys­tem (blood pres­sure, gut, pulse, and sweating).”
