How Swearing Helps Fibromyalgia Pain

Fight or Flight Response

Researchers believe that amygdala is responsible for the reaction. Amygdala triggers the fight or flight response which increases heart rate. Hence it enables the body to be less sensitive to pain. Scientists of the aforementioned study have also backed this by explaining that the heart rates of students in the study increased when they swear. This therefore suggests that the amygdala indeed was aroused.

Experts suggest that if you suffer from pain as a result of fibromyalgia, you can try swearing. However, they caution that the words can begin to lose their emotional potency if they are being repeated excessively. Therefore, try to be creative by coming up with new bad words each time you feel pain due to fibromyalgia.
