New research from two prominent medical journals confirm a relationship between Small Fiber Neuropathy and Fibromyalgia. The studies show objective evidence that at least some cases of fibromyalgia are due to a measurable nerve disorder that causes neuropathic pain.
These insights reinforce the idea that treatments for neuropathic pain may also help many patients with a fibromyalgia diagnosis. Consequently, some patients with a diagnosis of fibromyalgia will benefit from further nerve testing.
