Is this real research? About Fibromyalgia?

I can never tell if it's real or just wishful thinking

Well the website doesn't look like a source of high quality medical research given the stuff it was linking to on the sidebar, sorry.

It doesn't give any references to a published article in a peer reviewed journal, just 'Neuroscientist Dr Frank L Rice'. It doesn't even say which research institution he works for.

And if you follow the link you get exactly the same article which now appears to be published in 2013 on an American online news portal which vhas a mission statement saying it prides itself on including every point of view and being non-mainstream.

So I'm really sorry but there's no real evidence that this is real research at all.

That's what I thought

Mind you I couldn't see nerves in my hands making my feet hurt either

Thanks for the sanity check

Best remedy so far is 3x20 min baths each day - time consuming and expensive but massively helpful
