- 18 Apr, 2017
Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by sleep, fatigue, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia increases the volume of painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.
Women are much more likely to develop fibromyalgia than are men. Many people who have fibromyalgia also have tension headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, depression, and anxiety.
There is no cure for fibromyalgia, a variety of medications can help control symptoms. Exercise, relaxation and stress-reduction measures also may help.
There are several studies shows that treatments with powerful magnets may help relieve pain from fibromyalgia.
Scientists at the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) and elsewhere have studied magnet therapy as a treatment for fibromyalgia. Studies suggest that this treatment may reduce depression and ease the pain in some people with fibromyalgia. More research is needed on the benefits of magnet therapy for fibromyalgia.
