Exercise really won't make it better

Fibromyalgia patients have "an absence of exercise-induced analgesic response", which appears to prove (as we find) that exercise doesn't help us reduce pain or, if you want the longer version, "Isometric exercise has opposite effects on central pain mechanisms in fibromyalgia patients compared to normal controls."

Remind me to point this out to my GP some time.
