What is fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a chronic disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal
pain, fatigue, and multiple tender points. "Tender points" refers to tenderness
that occurs in precise, localized areas, particularly in the neck, spine,
shoulders, and hips. People with this syndrome may also experience sleep
disturbances, morning stiffness, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety, and other
Although the cause of fibromyalgia is unknown, researchers have several theories
about causes or triggers of the disorder. Some scientists believe that the
syndrome may be caused by an injury or trauma. This injury may affect the
central nervous system. Fibromyalgia may be associated with changes in muscle
metabolism, such as decreased blood flow, causing fatigue and decreased
strength. Others believe the syndrome may be triggered by an infectious agent
such as a virus in susceptible people, but no such agent has been identified.
Signs and symptoms of fibromyalgia can vary, depending on weather, stress,
physical activity or even just the time of day. Different people experience
different signs and symptoms, but common signs and symptoms include:
Widespread pain. Fibromyalgia is characterized by pain in specific areas of
your body when pressure is applied. These areas include the back of your head,
upper back and neck, upper chest, elbows, hips and knees. The pain generally
persists for months at a time and is often accompanied by stiffness.
Fatigue and sleep disturbances. People with fibromyalgia often wake up tired
and un-refreshed even though they seem to get plenty of sleep. Some studies
suggest that this problem is the result of a sleep disorder called alpha wave
interrupted sleep pattern, a condition in which deep sleep is frequently
interrupted by bursts of brain activity similar to wakefulness. So people with
fibromyalgia miss the deep restorative stage of sleep (stage 4). Night time
muscle spasms in your legs and restless legs syndrome also may be associated
Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). The constipation, diarrhoea, abdominal pain
and bloating associated with IBS are common in people with fibromyalgia.
Chronic headaches and facial pain. Many people who have fibromyalgia also have
recurrent tension-type headaches that may be related to tenderness in the neck
and shoulders. Facial pain is common, and as many as one-third experience jaw
pain temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction.
Heightened sensitivity. It's common for people with fibromyalgia to report
being sensitive to odours, noises, bright lights, touch and changes in weather.
Depression. As many as one-third of people with fibromyalgia also experience
Numbness or tingling sensations in the hands and feet.
Difficulty concentrating and mood changes.
Chest pain or pelvic pain.
Dry eyes, skin and mouth.
Painful menstrual periods.
Sensation of swollen hands and feet.
Magnetic therapy treatments for fibromyalgia:
Fibromyalgia sufferers can experience any number of the symptoms listed above,
although it is not common to experience all of them at once, it is common to
suffer from several at one time, as well as frequent flare ups of the remaining
symptoms. This makes fibromyalgia very difficult to treat. The majority of
people with fibromyalgia are prescribed medications to deal with all of their
different symptoms, this can lead a person taking a very large amount of tablets
each day. Many of the tablets will have unwanted, or unhealthy side effects
which have to be counteracted with even more medication. In short medicating
people with fibromyalgia becomes a vicious circle that is extremely hard to
Its no wonder that hundreds of fibromyalgia sufferers are turning to
therapy. Without using any drugs or any side effects magnets are proving to be a
very efficient way of managing the multiple symptoms of the disease.
The most effective treatment for fibromyalgia would be a combination of magnetic
1. Drinking magnetised water. By using a water wand or magnetic coaster to
magnetise drinking water, the symptoms of IBS, depression, mood swings and
chronic fatigue can be greatly reduced.
2. Wearing a super high strength magnetic bracelet (3,000 gauss/300 m tesla).
The magnetic bracelet will also help to reduce depression, mood swings and
chronic fatigue as well as improving the circulation and relieving hand pain.
When used in-conjunction with drinking magnetised water the results will be
stronger and much quicker.
3. Sleeping on a magnetic mattress
pad. This is probably the single most beneficial
treatment for fibromyalgia. The sheer strength of the magnetic field will
relieve the painful symptoms from all around the body. Multiple pain points can
all be eased with one device, plus the mattress when used in-conjunction with a
pillow pad will also improve sleep, reduce migraine and tension headaches,
reduce nerve pain and tingling and stabilise hormone levels.
Exposure to magnetic therapy devices must be an ongoing treatment for those with
fibromyalgia. The severity of the disease process does not allow for many
periods of remission, as a result when the magnets are discontinued symptoms
quickly return. It is for this reason that it is advocated that fibromyalgia
sufferers sleep on a magnetic mattress pad on a permanent basis.
