What Causes Fibromyalgia Tactile Allodynia Pain?
The pain is often a result of malfunctioning of specialized nerves known as nociceptors. Their main task is to sense information of the things going on around you, such as temperature, to prevent harm to your skin.
For instance, your hand would flinch immediately away from a hot burner even before you realize that you will burn yourself. This is a result of the nociceptors. They function on their own without the need to send signals to the brain to receive a response.
In fibromyalgia, nociceptors begin perceiving all types of painful sensations when there is none. Experts believe that this is one of the consequence of central sensitization associated with fibromyalgia. This includes chronic fatigue syndrome and several other conditions.
