Discovery of key genetic link between chronic pain conditions – Medical News Today.
Wow. It’s so interesting that pelvic pain and musculoskeletal pain and IBS are hereditary! My father has IBS and his mother was considered a hypochondriac because of undiagnosable pain… Hmmmm. On my mother’s side there is only Reynaud’s syndrome but that wasn’t included. This goes a long way to bolstering these diagnoses as legitimate, and pointing towards reasons behind abnormally sensitive pain processing in some of us.
