Fibromyalgia, interstitial cystitis, chronic fatigue, vulvodynia, irritable bowel syndrome. All of these chronic conditions of postmodernity could be due to the same cause, the little known Central Sensitization.
The complexity of chronic pain is very poorly addressed by health professionals who apply obsolete techniques resulting in desperate patients in an eternal pilgrimage through doctors' offices.
This is a comic called ''When the brain tricks you'' about a chronic pain focused in the lower pelvic area, called vulvodynia, but it can actually talk about any chronic pain couse by central sensitization. The good news is that a revolution in pain treatment has begun and this comic is a personal testimony of what it can achieve.
