From US news service WFTV 9 ABC:
Massachusetts researchers make major discovery about IBS, fibromyalgia
Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital have made a groundbreaking discovery that could ease symptoms for millions of people suffering from conditions such as chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia and irritable bowel syndrome.
Dr. Anne Louise Oaklander said a good proportion of patients diagnosed with those health issues may actually have a disease called small fiber polyneuropathy, or SFPN.
This is a disorder in which nerve cells found under the skin are attacked by the body's immune system.
