Fibromyalgia is a disease with an unknown origin that can have a wide range of symptoms of different intensities . In addition to chronic pain and fatigue, fibromyalgia is characterized by a series of neurological and cognitive symptoms , which is what is commonly known as fibro fog. In fibromyalgia, neurological problems present themselves as headaches , tinnitus, dizziness, sleep disorders (such as insomnia), or mood disorders (such as anxiety or depression).

CogniFit brain training for people with Fibromyalgia is an online cognitive stimulation and rehabilitation tool that reinforces and strengthens the cognitive abilities of people with fibro fog to minimize the extent of symptoms and cognitive impairment resulting from this disorder. This therapeutic training program is performed online through a computer, tablet or smartphone at least 3 times a week for approximately 20 minutes. This makes the cognitive intervention of fibromyalgia accessible to a large majority of people.

The aim of this training is to help slow and prevent symptoms as well as cognitive impairment , whether mild, moderate or severe, and to improve the cognitive skills affected by fibromyalgia. Neurorehabilitation with CogniFit helps improve cognitive skills affected in fibromyalgia, such as memory problems, difficulty concentrating, difficulty remembering familiar words, spatial disorientation, or difficulty performing more than one activity at the same time, etc.

The difficulty of Fibromyalgia cognitive training adapts as the person trains. This multi-dimensional scientific tool trains the 6 nuclear cognitive skills of fibromyalgia through more than 20 brain games and 15 assessment tasks . It has been perfected to continuously measure the user's performance and automatically adjust the complexity and types of tasks.

Interventions are designed to adapt to each patient needs and symptoms through innovative techniques and technology. The aim is to achieve the highest degree of independence and therefore an improvement in the self-sufficiency of the patient and their family.

Note: CogniFit does not treat fibromyalgia, but may help improve cognitive skills affected by the disorder.

Who is it for?

Who is it for?

Cognitive impairment from fibromyalgia (known as "Fibro fog") does not affect everyone in the same way. This variability can make it difficult to know when a person is actually suffering from fibro fog.

Nevertheless, it is recommended to seek treatment for these cognitive problems as soon as possible. Start CogniFit fibromyalgia training in any of these situations:

  • When the typical cognitive problems of fibromyalgia are detected: even before the diagnosis, you may begin to notice concentration difficulties or other alterations common in fibro fog. Even if you have not yet received an accurate diagnosis from a professional, cognitive training may be useful.
  • When diagnosed with fibromyalgia: if a formal diagnosis has already been made, the chances of suffering the cognitive alterations related to fibromyalgia are high. Although they might not yet be a real impediment to carrying out day-to-day activities, it is advisable to train regularly with CogniFit fibromyalgia training to help avoid further impairment. It is always best to start as soon as possible.
  • When there are cognitive problems, even if the diagnosis was made some time ago: Cognitive alterations may not appear from the beginning of the disease. Therefore, if at any time any of the cognitive symptoms of fibro fog are detected, it is advisable to carry out CogniFit fibromyalgia training. "Being perfectly fine until now" is not a reason to not take care of our cognitive health.

Trained cognitive skills

Trained cognitive skills

The pattern of cognitive impairments altered in fibromyalgia may vary from person to person. Some people may notice more problems in one specific area, with no major complaints in other areas; while another person may have the opposite pattern. In any case, the cognitive impairments reported by people with fibromyalgia tend to revolve around these cognitive abilities which are trained by CogniFit:

Cognitive Domains Trained
Cognitive Skills

Memory

The ability to retain or use new information and recover memories of the past. Memory allows us to store internal representations of knowledge in our brain and retain events from the past to use them in the future. Learning is a key process in memory because it makes it possible to incorporate new information or modify existing information in the previous mental schemas. After this coding and storage, the information, the memory, or the learning should be prepared to be recovered in the future. The hippocampus is a key brain structure in the mnesic process, and works actively during sleep to consolidate the information acquired during the day.

Naming

The ability to refer to an object, person, place, concept, or idea by its proper name. It is common for people who suffer from fibro fog to have great difficulty finding frequent words in their vocabulary. This is what is known as the "tip of the tongue effect".

Perception

Ability to interpret the stimuli of the environment. Perception is responsible for identifying and making sense of the information received from our sensory organs based on our prior knowledge of the world. Perception is a process that can be given by different senses (like sight, hearing, touch, etc.), and that our brain is responsible for integrating, giving it a sense of whole. The brain areas associated to perception are responsible for uniting the information perceived by the different sensory organs so that we can interact effectively with external stimuli, regardless of the stimulated sensory organ. In order for the perceptual process to be carried out properly, a process of assimilation and understanding of the information received will be necessary.

Reasoning

Ability to efficiently use (order, relate, etc.) the information acquired through the different senses. Through executive functions, we can access and use the information acquired in order to achieve complex goals. This set of superior processes makes it possible for us to relate, classify, order and plan our ideas or actions according to the needs that are imposed in the present or future. They allow us to be flexible and adapt to the environment. The executive functions make it possible to be effective in our day to day lives, solve problems and achieve our objectives even if there are modifications in the original plan.

Planning

Planning

The ability to "think about the future" or mentally anticipate the right way to carry out a task or reach a specific goal. This abstract ability to project into the future and order events to achieve a specific goal is often affected in people with fibromyalgia.

Attention

Ability to filter distractions and focus on relevant information. Attention accompanies every cognitive process and is in charge of assigning cognitive resources depending on the relevance of both internal and external stimuli. Good attention skills are necessary for other high-level processes, like memory or planning. Attention is an essential process that requires the use of different parts of the brain, from the brainstem or the parietal cortex, to the prefrontal cortex. However, it seems that the right hemisphere has a predominant role in controlling attention. This cognitive area makes it possible to stay alert and pay attention to the stimuli when other irrelevant distractors are present, concentration for long periods of time, alternating attention between different activities, or dividing attention when two events are happening at the same time.

What will I achieve with CogniFit fibromyalgia training?

What will I achieve with CogniFit fibromyalgia training?

CogniFit cognitive training for fibromyalgia uses brain plasticity to help improve the state of the cognitive dysfunctions of this disease. This improvement can help us in our daily lives in different ways:

  • Tools for managing chronic pain and fatigue: Fibromyalgia is characterized by chronic pain and fatigue. The distress generated by the main symptoms of fibromyalgia, along with cognitive problems, can hinder strategies for coping with fatigue and chronic pain. If, for example, we improve our planning skill through CogniFit fibromyalgia training, it can help us adjust our habits.
  • Prevent cognitive impairment from fibromyalgia: Since fibro fog (the pattern of cognitive impairment) is a common consequence of fibromyalgia, receiving a diagnosis or detecting the onset of these cognitive impairments should be reason enough to begin training. Training our brain before these cognitive impairments appear can help us reduce the future scope of these impairments.
  • Counteract cognitive impairment derived from fibromyalgia: If fibro fog-related cognitive symptoms are already present, CogniFit fibromyalgia training can help minimize the intensity of fibro fog symptoms.
  • Improve our day to day performance: Better cognitive health can help a person be more efficient at work, at school, or even improve our relationships with friends and family

How does it strengthen cognitive function?

How does it strengthen cognitive function?

CogniFit fibromyalgia training may help the brain compensate for cognitive difficulties resulting from this disease.

CogniFit fibromyalgia training is aimed at strengthening the brain regions involved in the correct functioning of the different cognitive capacities. CogniFit personalized training demands that this area is activated, if the demand is intense and constant over time, our brain decides to devote more resources to these areas. Increased resources may lead neurons in these areas to optimize their connections with other neurons or even increase the myelin sheath of their axons, making the transmission of information from one neuron to another more efficient. This may ultimately lead to better cognitive functioning.

This is known as brain plasticity , and it is the basis of CogniFit fibromyalgia training. Brain plasticity refers to the capacity of the nervous system to change its structure and its function over a lifetime, in reaction to environmental diversity. . For example, if we train our memory, it gets stronger and, if we don't train it, it gets weaker. It acts in a similar way to our muscles in the gym. Therefore, when we demand a lot of effort from a part of our brain, it dedicates more resources to it. As more resources become available, the neurons in this area increase their ramifications, optimize their connections and improve their status. When this happens, the cognitive functions that depend on these brain areas may become more efficient. CogniFit fibromyalgia training can help control these impairments and improve the patient's quality of life .

This way, it is possible if the scores are improving and if the patient's cognitive state shows a positive evolution or progress.

Adapted to each user

Training is always adapted to the user's specific and unique needs, so CogniFit will never choose two equal training plans for different people.

Tele-stimulation

Since CogniFit is an online tool, training can be carried out both in therapy and from the user's own home (cognitive tele-stimulation). In addition, it can be done from a computer, tablet or smartphone.

What happens if you don't train your cognitive skills?

What happens if you don't train your cognitive skills?

Fibromyalgia, as well as chronic pain and fatigue, can deteriorate the cognitive functioning of our brain, which can cause different neuropsychological symptoms , reducing the quality of life and impairing daily performance.

To stimulate these impaired cognitive skills, they need constant activation. One of the most effective tools for activating and strengthening the cognitive functions altered in fibromyalgia is CogniFit fibro fog training. This leading cognitive stimulation program offers a multi-dimensional and systematic training of each cognitive skill, which allows the brain to activate fundamental neural patterns.
