A new study reveals a link between high levels of caffeine consumption and increased fibromyalgia pain. Lead investigator, Steven E. Harte PhD of University of Michigan, studied 252 patients with fibromyalgia.  Those consuming 4 cups of coffee or greater per day reported significantly higher pain scores.  Dr. Harte’s lab is studying possible mechanisms to better understand the relationship between caffeine and pain.

At my northshore office,  we fully evaluate factors contributing to pain problems.
