Can you inherit fibromyalia?

13 October 2016, 13:02 S Mbinya

Fibromyalia is a medical condition that has historically been found in children, men and women from all walks of life. The actual date of the first case of fibromyalia cannot be traced.

It manifests in the form of sympathetic hyperactivity. Patients with this condition experience exceeding pain following injury. It is impossible that people are born with this pain, and therefore to say that fibromyalia is hereditary is to say that some people are born more prone to nervous system dysfunction.

Common sense and medical statistics rule this out. Nobody is born vulnerable to paraneurotic pain.

Medics consider the various nerve lesions to be as a result of dysfunction of the nervous system. Dysfunction of the nerves can never be inherited or embedded within the DNA of humans. This conclusion therefore rules out any chances of genetic association.

Fibromyalia has also been studied in animals, in an effort to explain the development of the condition, as well as its symptoms. Animals have been diagnosed with this condition, ruling out any chances that fibromyalia is hereditary.
