Central sensitization is a condition of the nervous system that is associated with the development and maintenance of chronic pain. This includes Fibromyalgia, Myofascial Pain, TMJ, Interstitial Cystitis (IC), chronic pelvic pain, migraines, tension headaches, PTSD, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity(MCS). When central sensitization occurs, the nervous system goes through a process called wind-up and gets regulated in a persistent state of high reactivity. This persistent, or regulated, state of reactivity lowers the threshold for what causes pain and subsequently comes to maintain pain even after the initial injury has healed.
