Fibromyalgia & Magnesium

Also known as FMS, fibromyalgia is a chronic condition of unknown origin which is characterised by muscle and joint pain and stiffness, fatigue, headaches, difficulty sleeping, IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) and problems with mental concentration and memory. It is a debilitating inflammatory condition which makes it impossible for sufferers to live a normal, active life.

Triggers for FMS could include stressful events, such as an illness or death of a relative, childbirth, having an operation, relationship breakdown and even an injection.

Research has established a connection between fibromyalgia and magnesium deficiency. In fact, some suggest a possibility of misdiagnosis, since severe magnesium deficiency causes symptoms similar to those of fibromyalgia.

The results of one study concluded that “transdermal MgCl2 applied twice daily on upper and lower limbs may be beneficial for patients with fibromyalgia. To our knowledge, this is the first study evaluating the effectiveness and feasibility of transdermal MgCl2 for treatment of fibromyalgia symptoms.”

Apart from oral, transdermal magnesium supplementation by rubbing magnesium oil on the skin, having a magnesium massage or Far Infrared magnesium wrap would help deliver adequate amounts of magnesium to the body fast and help relieve pain, increase energy levels and concentration.  Regular magnesium baths would also be very beneficial.
