Researchers find non damaged nerves send pain signalsTopics: Health Issues
What causes long term pain? For some people, when they have been injured, pain does not end when it is supposed to subside. This is a part of the problem that faces the person who suffers from something like fibromyalgia. What is known is that the pain signals are being sent to the brain. The question is: how does this happen?
Researchers in Britain appear to have found a possible answer to this one question: the nerve fibres of the undamaged nerves are sending the signals to the brain.
The results of this new research means that the researchers can now seek new means of developing drugs that will help kill the pain in patients that suffer from neuropathic pain.
