Tue, Apr 9 9:10am · Has anyone been diagnosed with Central Sensitization? in Brain & Nervous System

Thanks, I do have central sensitization. Do other people with central sensitization have this feeling of overload in busy situations as well? If so, any tips to learn to filter some of it out? Thanks!

Hi, I have fibromyalgia, and I also experience a feeling of sensory overload in busy social situations that makes me shut down. Does anyone know if the two are linked through central sensitization? (I am not on the autism spectrum.) Also, can anyone suggest any ways to learn how to filter out the extraneous activity so I can continue to function in those environments, which I need to do for work? Thanks!

Thank you Justin! I've brought it up with a couple of doctors but not really gotten much of a response. Still working on it. I'll take a look at the articles. 🙂

Is there a connection between central sensitization and autoimmune diseases? Can one trigger the other? Thanks!

Jul 14, 2018 · Bipolar disorder, central sensitization, autoimmune in Mental Health

Hi, I'm Melissa. I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, fibromyalgia, and autoimmune disorders. I have seen journal articles indicating that bipolar may be autoimmune, and I also understand that depression and anxiety may relate to central sensitization, like fibromyalgia. I'm a little confused on how these all relate to one another and where the bipolar fits in. Is there someone who can clarify – is bipolar autoimmune? Is it a form of central sensitization? Is it both? Neither? So confused. 🙁 Thanks!

Hi, I'm Melissa, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia a couple of years ago and just went through the two day fibro program at Mayo. I also have bipolar disorder so am joining the mental health group as well, but I find that there is a lot of overlap between the behavioral aspects of treatment for the two illnesses – mindfulness, relaxation, stress management, exercise, diet, social support, moderation (yikes – that's not a strength area!)
