Muscle System Glog: Fibromyalgia


Is Homeostasis Broken?

What is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia  is a very common chronic pain disorder which effects the skeletal muscles, and effects the way the brain sends pain signals throughout the nervous system. The Symptoms include fatigue, issues sleeping, remembering things, and can effect mood. It mostly effects people over 50.

Homeostasis is definitely broken due to the fact that the person cannot function properly  due to the pain. The nerves do not function properly because they cannot transmit pain the same way.
