Fibromyalgia – an agonising condition that causes pain all over the body – may be caused by insulin resistance, scientists say
Sufferers of fibromyalgia and other forms of chronic pain have been given fresh hope following a groundbreaking new health study into how their symptoms could be treated successfully.
Researchers have found that the agonising condition may be caused by insulin resistance, and it could be treated using a common drug taken by diabetics.
Scientists hope their findings could lead to a major change in how chronic pain is treated and potentially save billions in painkillers
Fibromyalgia is a long-term condition that causes pain all over the body and other symptoms such as extreme tiredness, headaches , muscle stiffness and difficulty sleeping.
