I was introduced to a diagnosis today that I found a bit disturbing. It’s called Amplified Musculoskeletal Pain Syndrome, and the chatter around it reminds me of GET and the like—symptoms seem disproportionate, exercising through the pain won’t harm you, fear of movement, the pain is bad because you give in to it, central sensitization, etc. Link 1 Link 2 Basically they try to flood your brain so it desensitizes to the pain. My doctor found it inhumane. And while some of the concepts seem reasonable in theory, the approach sets off a lot of red flags. So I was wondering if any of you had heard of this before, knew how it was developed, or knew who it was associated with. Apologies if this is in the wrong forum. I just got home from an appointment, and the brain fog is bad with this one.
