The Top 5 Fibro Articles for the Week of April 8, 2013 are…

  • First up this week: Adrienne Dellwo is our Fibro Warrior of the Week this week, so make sure to take a look at her interview! And make sure to read this fascinating piece she wrote about virtual reality and treating Fibromyalgia: “Virtual-reality based relaxation and mindfulness can improve some fibromyalgia symptoms, according to a small new study.” Read more: Virtual Reality as Fibromyalgia Treatment
  • Third, an all-time favorite here at Fibro Daily, just because of the historical ramifications: The Myth of the Eight-Hour Sleep. This is an absolutely fascinating article written a little over a year ago, examining the complete societal “amnesia” about a phenomenon known as the “second sleep” as well as the myth of the eight hour sleep. With all the sleep problems that abound in Fibromyalgia, this article provides new insight into why you may need to rethink your sleeping habits.
  • Our fourth top article of the week explores how the ability to build better blood vessels would help sustain tissues in the body, an ability which up until now has served as a roadblock for researchers. However, University of Michigan researchers may have found a way to circumnavigate the roadblock via exciting new findings. Read more: Building Better Blood Vessels Could Advance Tissue Engineering
  • We close the Top 5 with the groundbreaking possibility of seeing pain imprinted on the brain. For First Time, Pain ‘Signature’ Spotted on Brain MRIs reveals that specialized MRI scans may reveal pain signatures on the brain. This is the first time that scientists have seen the evidence of pain and the distinct mark it leaves on people who suffer from it. The study focused on short-term pain sufferers, but hopefully this study will offer hope to those who struggle with chronic pain.

Enjoy your weekend!
