    I don't think this is new; did a couple of searches and it seems to have been a study done in 2013.
    But there's this:http://gaia-health.com/conventional-medicine/pharmaceuticals/study-claims-cfsme-cause-found-really/

    "A new study, financed by Eli Lilly & Forest Labs, claims to have found the cause of fibromyalgia, along with proposing a treatment. The claim falls flat on examination, but Eli Lilly & Forest Labs now have a pathway to reinvent old drugs for a new disease—so they can repatent the drugs!"

    Here's the original study:
    Excessive peptidergic sensory innervation of cutaneous arteriole-venule shunts (AVS) in the palmar glabrous skin of fibromyalgia patients: implications for widespread deep tissue pain and fatigue.
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23691965
    Albrecht PJ1, Hou Q, Argoff CE, Storey JR, Wymer JP, Rice FL.
    "AVS were identified in hypothenar skin biopsies from 18/24 FM patient and 14/23 control subjects" - it doesn't sound like they studied enough subjects to come to the conclusion that this is a feature of just FM patients since it was also present in so many control subjects.

    It sounds like everyone is expected to have AVS, but the FM patients differed in that theirs featured a lot more innervation.

    That makes more sense now. I missed that part!
