Anyone else out there who is Alexithymic, and has chronic pain, like fibromyalgia, or chronic fatigue syndrome? Or know any information on the subject connecting the two?

Hi there,
I recently learned I have family history and my grandfather (mom’s side) WWII vet out of the blue says he “had to get Vit B shots real regular while in the service” and that his dad may have had a similar problem.
B is an important part of the myelin sheathing nerves rely on to conduct properly, genetics may play a role too as the body’s ability to utilize Vitamins relies on a Methylation gene.
As well we’re white Midwestern so Irish Scotch German or Swede, very low Vit D, CFS, IBS, carpal, Fibromyalgia seem very prevalent on mother’s side back to her mom so both matrilineal parents may have had severe vitamin deficiencies, worth looking into and good luck

Alexithymia - emotional blindness - is a personality trait characterized by the inability to identify and describe emotions in the self. Core characteristics of alexithymia are marked dysfunction in emotional awareness, social attachment, and interpersonal relationship.
Alexithymia is prevalent in approximately 10% of the general population and is known to be comorbid with a number of psychiatric conditions. Due the inability to cope with feelings and emotions as described in psychology there are counseling services to establish mental health.
Psychologist have argued that the alexithymia construct is strongly related to the concepts of psychological mindedness and emotional intelligence.
