Living with fibromyalgia is a struggle. People might not believe the pain is real, but for those going through it, the agony is absolutely real and physical. Every ache, every tender point, is proof of a pain that’s hard to understand.

In the world of fibromyalgia, the mantra becomes a desperate plea: “The pain must be biologically real, not imagined.” It’s a sentiment whispered by the hearts that bear the weight of this condition. Within the folds of fibromyalgia’s grasp, a silent narrative unfolds—one of resilience, strength, and the pursuit of understanding.

Often Overlooked & Misdiagnosed Symptoms

Many do not link chronic pain, fatigue, and fibromyalgia together, as FMS can mimic other rheumatic diseases. Common symptoms of fibromyalgia include:

  • Pain and stiffness throughout the body
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Sleep problems
  • Cognitive issues (e.g. thinking, memory, and concentration)
  • Headaches and migraines

Fibromyalgia symptoms vary from person to person, thus a targeted, personalized program addressing the underlying mechanisms of the condition is key to long-term improvements. Still not sure about your symptoms? we are here to help.

  • Fibromyalgia Symptoms Originate in the Brain

    We know now that fibromyalgia symptoms originate in the brain, in regions responsible for interpreting sensations. In the past decade, the term central sensitization syndrome has gained credence as a catchy phrase for a principal cause of fibromyalgia. 

    Moreover, medical scientists have shown that chronic pain syndromes, and fibromyalgia in particular, evolve over a lifetime. These ailments reflect wounds hidden in the brain, wounds that might have occurred as far back as early childhood and never healed.

  • Psychology Can Determine Biology and Vice Versa

    Brain damage in fibromyalgia might be related to injuries from a car accident or a fallsome blow to the head. We call this mechanical brain injury. The damage might have been caused by viruses that infected the nerve system. Both culminate in biological injuries with mental consequences. 

    Yet, as we discovered in our fibromyalgia studies, the pain might be caused by some previous severe emotional stress.

    This is a key point: psychology can determine biology. And vice versa: biological injury can manifest initially through symptoms of psychological distress.

HBOT Decreases Chronic Pain Linked with Fibromyalgia

60 women with fibromyalgia were treated with HBOT sessions for 12 weeks. Their quality of life indicators significantly improved, and imaging showed parts of the brain that previously carried abnormalities had normalized.

 How New Fibromyalgia Treatment Options Can Improve Quality of Life

Stress management activities along with a unique HBOT protocol have shown promising results for those suffering from fibromyalgia. Because the condition impacts individuals differently, receiving a personalized treatment plan is critical to achieving long-term results.

Fibromyalgia Healing: Clear & Proven Research

Recent clinical studies found that HBOT in combination with a personalized and comprehensive treatment approach can “improve pain symptoms, quality of life, emotional and social function” in those suffering from FMS triggered by a TBI. Moreover, it can “induce neuroplasticity and significantly rectify abnormal brain activity in pain-related areas of FMS patients” and has improved symptoms of FMS in 70% of patients, proving it a viable fibromyalgia treatment option. Remarkably, participants in the clinical fibromyalgia trial saw significant symptom improvement, with results remaining consistent even two years after the study’s end

“We saw the wound in the brain, and we treated it. It’s amazing what happened to them, just amazing. The way they see the world is totally different. The way they communicate with their children, their families. They’re successful at work. They don’t take medication anymore. It’s a game-changer.”

What Is Fibromyalgia/Chronic Pain?

Fibromyalgia, also called fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS), is a long-term condition that causes debilitating pain all over the body. People living with fibromyalgia often suffer from extreme tiredness, difficulty sleeping, brain fog, memory problems, and mood issues.

FMS affects “2%–4% of the population” and it’s described as more relevant in women than in men.

What Causes Fibromyalgia/Chronic Pain?

While the exact cause of Fibromyalgia is unknown, in many cases it appears to be triggered by either severe emotional stress or a physical impact such as traumatic brain injury, post-concussion disorder or viral disease.

Recent studies found the syndrome is related to certain malfunctioning brain areas that are responsible for pain sensation, pain tolerance, and the ability to process pain signals.
