HELIO: Subset of patients with fibromyalgia show higher leptin, inflammatory markers
Fibromyalgia, a neurological disease with chronic widespread pain as a core symptom, is a presumptive condition for the purposes of Gulf War veterans' service-connected disability claims with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
Fibromyalgia is thought to be related to Gulf War Illness (GWI), of which chronic widespread pain is frequently -- but not always -- also a core symptom.
