Fibromyalgia patients have reduced hippocampal volume compared with healthy controls

Hippocampal atrophy resulting from FM may, in turn, worsen or exacerbate FM symptomatology. For example, FM patients often report a subjective worsening of cognitive function characterized by short-term memory problems (ie, the “fibro fog”). Furthermore, the hippocampal atrophy and dysfunction may “feed forward”, resulting in more severe pain, discomfort, and anxiety in FM patients, due to its central role in limbic circuits and pain modulation networks.
