Fibromyalgia patients grapple with many uncomfortable symptoms other than generalized pain. These include fatigue, mental issues like depression and anxiety, hypersensitivity to lights, sounds and touch and food and chemical sensitivity etc. Memory loss is also common in those who are suffering from fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia memory loss can be more difficult to manage than expected.
What Causes Fibromyalgia Memory Loss?
There are several factors that could contribute to memory loss in fibromyalgia. In fact, this is a genuine symptom experienced by many fibromyalgia patients. Several studies have been conducted to investigate memory loss in fibromyalgia.
It has been found that at least a quarter of those who are suffering from fibromyalgia symptoms have suffered from an excessive degree of activity at the pre-frontal area of the brain’s cortex area. This part of the brain is responsible to retain and recall information in the brain. If this area becomes hyperactive, it will be much more difficult to retain previously stored information in the brain.
