The Central Sensitivity Syndrome (SSC ) encompasses difficult to diagnose diseases such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome multiple chemical, among others.

-¿be cured completely ?¿What are the treatments you apply?¿What is the prognosis ?

No one can speak of healing because it is a syndrome that we know very little and there is still much research. We speak of regulation. This chronic process can be regulated, breaking the vicious circles that occur in its pathophysiology.

For this we have different treatments and therapy transcranial electromagnetic fields with low intensity for the modulation of pain, especially intended for patients with fibromyalgia or migraine;therapeutic diets, food desensitization with hospital admissions or immunotherapy specified to regulate the immune system;antioxidant treatments to treat cellular damage, etc.

-¿A that age is more common presenting this syndrome


It is more common in middle-aged women, about thirty or forty years, but increasingly diagnosed in people younger. It is more common in women than in men, approximately 80 percent of patients who present are women and 20 percent are men.

-If not treated properly,¿that can happen to the patient ?

These diseases are chronic, evolve with age and may come a time when the patient sees their quality of life greatly diminished. Although all these diseases form the SSC, not all patients will have the same predominant symptoms.

In function of what predominates (fatigue, digestive symptoms, migraine, muscle aches, etc. ), and the intensity of symptoms, quality of life will look more or less affected. For example, tolerates worst migraine muscle pain or digestive symptoms. What is clear is that if left untreated, progressively worse over time and can talk to the inability to perform daily activities or work.
