Reduced high-energy phosphate levels in the painful muscles of patients with primary fibromyalgia.

Abstract

Muscle energy metabolism was studied by chemical analysis of biopsy samples from: 1) trigger points in the trapezius muscle from 15 patients with primary fibromyalgia (PF), 2) nonpainful, anterior tibial muscle from 6 patients with PF, and 3) the trapezius muscle from 8 healthy controls. We found a decrease in the levels of adenosine triphosphate, adenosine… (More)
