This episode continues pain science education of fibromyalgia.

We continue the discussion about how pain and stress are related.

Our brain appraises every situation we encounter through primary and secondary appraisals. Every situation, experience, circumstance, and body sensation, including pain, is judged by our brain as harmless or stressful; it is instantaneous and automatic.

Harmless experience does not activate the stress response of the nervous system.

Stressful situations will further be accessed as a threat, loss, or challenge.

The most common way the brain in patients with fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions appraises stress or pain as a threat. There is increased focus on pain, diminishing attention, worsening memory and concentration, commonly known as fibro fog.

The loss is often associated more with consequences of chronic pain – loss of function, income, relationships. However, the goal is to learn how to see pain as more of a challenge, something you can cope with that does not overwhelm the body and mind.
