Are Oxygen Starved Tissues Causing Pain & Fatigue in FM?

Conventionally Fibromyalgia (FM or FMS) is described as "a medical disorder characterized by chronic widespread pain and allodynia, a heightened and painful response to pressure. Fibromyalgia symptoms are not restricted to pain, leading to the use of the alternative term fibromyalgia syndrome for the condition."
However please read the topics to discover that 'Fibromyalgia' is perhaps very similar to other illnesses caused by cranio-dental and skeletal asymmetries.

Are Oxygen Starved Tissues Causing Pain & Fatigue in FM?

The Study
In this study researchers used an hybrid Near Infrared Spectroscopy ( NIRS) technique to measure three important features of producing energy; how much blood was flowing to the muscles, how much oxygen was present, and how much oxygen was actually taken up by the muscles.

Large blood flows flood the muscles (or should flood the muscles) during exercise to deliver oxygen for aerobic energy production and wash away toxic byproducts ( such as lactic acid).

This study found FM patients muscles were getting the blood they needed but for some reason they weren’t taking up the oxygen very quickly and it took longer for the oxygen levels of their cells to get back to normal after exercise. Two things could explain this strange scenario..
