Fibromyalgia, also known as fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) is one of the most common chronic pain disorders, affecting about 4 million adults in America alone. Although it is seen in men and women, it is found that women are twice as likely as men to have fibromyalgia. Men affected with fibromyalgia tend to have mild symptoms. People suffering with fibromyalgia will often experience fatigue, cognitive difficulties, sleep disorders, and musculoskeletal pain throughout their body. While there is not yet a cure for fibromyalgia, there are viable treatment options that help to manage the pain and other symptoms of this condition.
Some studies have found that CBD for fibromyalgia helps to reduce inflammation, ease chronic pain and improve sleep. If you are thinking about using CBD to help manage symptoms of fibromyalgia, you should first talk to your doctor, especially if you are taking any other medications or treatments.
