Alodínia e Fibromialgia

Quem sofre de Fibromialgia ou dor crónica, depara-se muitas vezes (mesmo muitas vezes) com o problema da dor. Quem nunca sentiu dor ao ser tocada pelos lençóis da cama? Sabe o que é sentir dor, ao sentir uma rajada de vento a passar pelo corpo? E desconforto horrível sentido com qualquer peça de roupa, mesmo tendo sido usada vezes sem conta? Para quem está de fora, parece exagero. Mas, caríssimo leigo, de exagerado não tem nada. Esta sensação de dor exacerbada é real, e tem um nome…ALODÍNIA! E é mais um sintoma da Fibromialgia.

A melhor forma de explicar a alguém de forma a que perceba, é pedir para que pense nas zonas mais sensíveis do seu corpo. Tanto pode ser nos lábios, dedos, língua, não importa. Agora imagine a totalidade do seu corpo, incluindo os músculos, serem compostos pelos mesmos tecidos e nervos dessa sua zona mais sensível. Agora imagine essa zona ser constantemente estimulada, o dia inteiro, e com “sorte”, também durante a noite. É isso que sente um fibromiálgico quando o vento passa por ele, ou quando a roupa magoa.

Então, o que é alodínia?
Pesquisadores da Universidade de Cardiff, com sede no Reino Unido, explicam que “a dor neuropática é causada por dano ou disfunção do sistema nervoso central e periférico em vez de estimulação de receptores de dor”. Se tem ou já leu sobre Fibromialgia, estas conclusões devem ser-lhe tremendamente familiares. Na verdade, eles acrescentam que “a dor neuropática geralmente resulta em dores” espontâneas “. Algumas dessas sensações parecem ter “vida própria” e são bizarras. Sensações, dores estranhas e espontâneas? Ou seja, no da a dia de um doente com Fibromialgia essas dores estranhas e espontâneas têm o nome de alodínia.
Alodinia, vem do grego allo (outro) e odyne (dor), envolve uma mudança no sentido da dor, da qualidade de uma sensação, seja de que tipo for. Estímulos sensoriais que em situações normais não provocam dor.
Trata-se de uma disfunção da actividade cerebral que se manifesta como uma sensação de dor quando, normalmente, o estímulo não é doloroso. Quando uma pessoa tem uma sensação e os impulsos que chegam ao cérebro são interpretados como uma sensação desagradável, produz-se dor. Isto pode acontecer porque o impulso é realmente doloroso ou porque a mensagem das fibras nervosas está alterada. Pode-se estar a estimular determinadas áreas do corpo sem implicar dor, mas o cérebro pode interpretá-las como uma sensação dolorosa. Por essa razão, quando tocamos a pele, há uma sensação de desconforto, como se a parte tocada tivesse sofrido uma queimadura, por mais leve que seja o atrito no local afetado.
 
Porque é que isto acontece?
Esta forma de dor vem de um mau funcionamento de nervos chamados nociceptores. O trabalho dos nociceptores é detectar informações específicas no seu ambiente, como temperatura e coisas que podem causar danos, sobretudo no nível da pele.
Sabe como às vezes a sua mão se encolhe junto de um objecto quente antes mesmo de perceber que está prestes a queimar-se? Isso é devido à ação única dos nociceptores, que realmente funcionam por conta própria, sem ter que enviar sinais para o cérebro e obter uma resposta de volta.
Na fibromialgia, por algum motivo, os  nociceptores começam a perceber que todos os tipos de sensações são dolorosas. Os pesquisadores acreditam que faz parte da sensibilização central associada à fibromialgia, síndrome de fadiga crónica e algumas outras condições.
Tipos de alodínia
Existem três formas de alodínia:
– Primeiro é o toque ou o tátil, ou seja, a dor que vem do toque de, por exemplo, roupas contra a pele. – A segunda é a alodínia mecânica que é causada pelo movimento em toda a pele de coisas como toalhas usadas para secar, escovar lençóis e sim, mesmo o vento.
– Por último, é a alodínia térmica ou relacionada à temperatura. Acontece quando temperaturas quentes ou frias que não são extremas o suficiente para danificar seus tecidos. Mas com alodínia, essa sensação intensifica-se, então podemos referir uma sensibilidade à temperatura.
A mesma pessoa pode sentir apenas uma das formas de alodínia, mas também pode sentir as três. O que parece inequívoco é que alodínia e fibromialgia, andam quase sempre, de mãos dadas.
