Substance P

I discovered an article the other day titled expanded list of symptoms of fibromyalgia on Facebook, It mentions that fibromyalgia sufferers have three times the amount of Substance P in their bodies. Substance P is the vehicle that carries pain stimuli to the brain

. The article is very interesting reading so I thought I would share the article on this forum. Maybe most of fibromyalgia sufferers can relate to article, it was written some years ago but still interesting to read. Has anybody heard of Substance P? I Googled it and I saw something saying a Substance P inhibitor was being used to help fibromyalgia pain. If anyone has had this treatment I would love to hear more so I can ask my GP wether it is something that can be prescribed for my pain

Magnesium is Essential for Preventing Substance P Overload

IV done a bit of googling to find some info on Substance P, basically its to do with low magnesium. I thought i had made some medical break through in New treatment for fibromyalgia. Lol oh well back to the drawing board or Holland and Barrett for magnesium tablets which IV tried before but no relief .

If your interested in reading article I found it through a Google search and discovered it that way. I have typed the title of article on Facebook but no results so if anyone is interested in reading it I suggest typing expanded list of symptoms of fibromyalgia into Google search bar and find it that way.

It was called substance P because it was isolated as a powder so P for powder when it was unknown what it actually was. It was not until animal experiments with rats and mice that the P was for pain came to light and finding high levels in chronic pain was suddenly relevant.

Hi Angeren14

Thank you so much for raising this on the the forum, it is quite an interesting take on Fibro. There is a detailed article about Substance P on our mother site, FMA UK so I have pasted a link to the cache below:

I want to genuinely wish you all the best of luck, and please take care of yourself.

All my hopes and dreams for you

Ken

That explains why the only thing that gives any pain relief is an Epsom Salts bath!
