People suffering from fibromyalgia have a new option for treatment, according to a study conducted in France. Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, or TMS, has shown positive results in treatment of the symptoms of fibromyalgia, and helps people have a better quality of life without the harmful side effects of other treatment options.
The symptoms of fibromyalgia are relentless. Widespread pain, irregular sleep patterns, fatigue, nausea, etc. The pain that is experienced with fibromyalgia is caused both locally in the muscles as well as in the brain’s perception of the pain signals. The brain is the processor of the pain, and that’s why TMS is a treatment option for the pain. Fibromyalgia can also lead to Depression and Anxiety.
TMS is a treatment designed to work around the blood to brain approach of drugs, and instead directly stimulates the brain with magnetic pulses. As a result, there are very minimal side effects, and the same benefits. Fibromyalgia’s side effects are bad enough by themselves but compounded with the side effects of drugs it can feel like taking one step forwards and two steps back. TMS provides positive results without the feeling of losing progress.
