L-Serine Supplementation in Hereditary Sensory Neuropathy Type 1 (clinical trial)
Note that many people with Fibromyalgia also have nerve pain and symptoms that are found in peripheral neuropathy (see above), thus:
Objective evidence that small-fiber polyneuropathy underlies some illnesses currently labeled as fibromyalgia. (From Harvard University and Massachusetts General Hospital, “… Although there is no cure for the genetic forms of SFPN yet, a trial of L-serine is under way for hereditary sensory and … of a small sample of patients labeled with FMS have objective evidence of a neurological cause of their CWP and other symptoms of fibromyalgia, namely SFPN …”)

3-PGDH, inborn Serine Deficiency Disorder
Serine deficiency is a rare, inherited, metabolic disorder that interferes with normal growth and development, particularly in the central nervous system.

Early diagnosis and treatment are the key elements for the greatest success.
