What is Fibromyalgia and the symptoms?
Fibromyalgia is the second most common condition affecting your bones and muscles. Rather than hurting in a specific area, the pain and stiffness could be throughout your body. Its classic symptoms are widespread muscle and joint pain and fatigue.
Common symptoms also include:
- Muscle pain, burning, twitching, or tightness
- Low pain threshold or tender points
- Draining fatigue
- Trouble concentrating and remembering, called "fibro fog"
- Insomnia or not sleeping well
- Feeling nervous, worried, or depressed
Studies have shown that plant based endocannabinoid medicines can potentially improve Fibromyalgia symptoms. Fibromyalgia sufferers seek relief from pain and stiffness. Endocannabinoid medicines have anti-inflammatory properties. An endocannabinoid study Fibromyalgia from 2018 showed that all of the participants found improvement in symptoms from plant based medicine use. More than half ceased taking other synthetic medications. Another fibromyalgia study concluded that approximately 86% of patients reported mild to strong relief of pain from the use of medical cannabis.
