Some researchers have written that patients with Fibromyalgia have a lowered threshold for pain. This statement has been used to belittle and even to victimize Fibromyalgia patients. It is important to make something very clear. PEOPLE WITH FIBROMYALGIA EXPERIENCE A LOT MORE PAIN FROM ANY GIVEN STIMULUS THAN A HEALTHY PERSON WOULD. But, based upon my observations, many patients with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain have a high pain tolerance, even though they feel pain more readily. The amount of pain some of us endure is amazing.
