Fibromyalgia is one of the most common chronic pain conditions and affects around 10 million people in the US. Fibromyalgia is characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that Fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.
Treatments include physical therapy, diet changes and prescribed medications. Medications prescribed for Fibromyalgia include Acetaminophen, antidepressants, Capsaicin, Cyclobenzaprine, Duloxetine, Gabapentin, Ibuprofen, Pramipexole, Pregabalin and Tramadol. Each medication contains negative side effects that include nausea, headache, abdominal pain, rash, sexual problems, insomnia, blurred vision, dizziness, anxiety, dry mouth, constipation, heartburn, memory loss, tremors and viral infections.
CBD can effectively reduce pain and improve sleep for people with Fibromyalgia. Research suggests that CBD may change the way people process pain, with beneficial effects. CBD may interrupt the nerve pathways that send signals of pain between the brain and body.
There is also an anti-inflammatory action of CBD that would reduce heat or swelling around injury or disease. Which also reduces pain without the negative side effects of prescribed medications.
