So eveyone has signal's from the brain to the nervous system for pain, illness etc...imagine that these signals from the brain are all driving down a busy road, then they stop at a gate that runs straight across the road. A healthy person has the gate open and close letting a few of the signals through at a time. A person with fibromyalgia has a problem where the gate is left open and all of the signals rush through the gate to the nervous system causing the nervous system to send pain/illness symptoms every where because the millions of brain signals told it to do so. Well i hope that helps, it helped me grasp it a little easier
