Causes of FM

A better question is, “What causes this condition?” Dr. Hyde offered 3 suggestions:

  • Central Nervous System (CNS) injury of the arterial messenger system
  • genetic disease
  • autoimmune or chemical injury to the arterial wall’s succinyl choline receptors.

In diffuse encephalitis, the brain, which produces the hormones that tell your blood vessels to contract, has been injured by the kind of encephalopathy that ME-type patients or acute onset ME/CFS patients have.

Dr. Hyde thinks FM is a central nervous system injury to the arterial messenger system.
