Medical Marijuana for Fibromyalgia

For those diagnosed with fibromyalgia, medical marijuana may be a treatment option to relieve the symptoms associated with this debilitating condition. Fibromyalgia is a central nervous system disorder that causes widespread muscle pain throughout the entire body. People with fibromyalgia may be more susceptible to pain than others. This medical condition is often accompanied by many of the following symptoms: fatigue, sleep issues, pain, muscle stiffness, cognitive issues, headaches, sometimes even migraines, and mood changes, including anxiety and depression. Other symptoms are a tingling sensation and patients feeling numbness in their feet or hands, digestive tract issues, and jaw pain. These symptoms can vary for each fibromyalgia patient. 

Fibromyalgia is often linked with other medical conditions. If you have already been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis or lupus, there is a greater chance that you may be susceptible to developing fibromyalgia. 

While this chronic medical condition cannot be cured, there are treatment options available for severe fibromyalgia. These treatments include standard medications prescribed by your doctor, regular exercise, stress coping mechanisms, and cognitive behavior therapy for anxiety and depression. The extreme pain fibromyalgia patients experience hinders their daily routines and quality of life, which can lead to depression and anxiety. 

There have been studies that show that medical marijuana for fibromyalgia may help improve symptoms associated with chronic pain and help with its anti-inflammatory benefits. Additional advantages of using medical cannabis for fibromyalgia symptoms include the fact that THC improves mood, eliminates nausea, expands appetite, and eases pain. Another part of the cannabis plant, CBD, helps uplift moods while also providing anti-inflammatory benefits. 

Fibromyalgia is one of the qualifying health conditions in Illinois for patients to receive medical cannabis to help alleviate their associated symptoms. In order to obtain medical marijuana, fibromyalgia patients must apply for a medical marijuana card.

**Always ask your primary care physician whether you should use medical cannabis for fibromyalgia symptoms. This information should not replace professional medical advice.
