Background The cause of FM is unknown, but it is generally accepted that there is enhanced
central excitability and reduced pain inhibition.
TENS works by reducing central excitability and activating central inhibition
pathways.
Objective The primary aim of this study was to test the effectiveness of TENS on pain, fatigue
and function in a crossover study for patients with FM.
A secondary aim was to test the effect of TENS on central inhibition and
hyperalgesia as an indicator of central excitability.
