Medical Marijuana for Fibromyalgia

What is Fibromyalgia?

Fibromyalgia is a central nervous system disorder that causes widespread muscle pain throughout the entire body. The extreme pain fibromyalgia patients experience hinders their daily routines and quality of life, which can lead to depression and anxiety. 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.

Fibromyalgia Symptoms

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 Treatment

While this chronic medical condition cannot be cured, patients with severe fibromyalgia will have treatment options via therapy and prescriptions. These treatments include standard medications prescribed by your doctor, regular exercise, stress coping mechanisms, and cognitive behavior therapy for anxiety and depression.
