Brain Scan Shows Difference in Fibromyalgia Patients

November 4, 2008

Fibromyalgia is one of those diseases that the medical world isn’t quite sure to make of.  Yet, a recent study has shown that the brain behaves differently in these patients.  By using single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) scans, reaserchers found differences in the brain activity of those people with fibromyalgia.  Those parts of the brain affected deal with the preception of pain and emotional responses to pain.
