If you are suffering from fibromyalgia, then you are one of over six million Americans who suffer from the disabling condition. Fibromyalgia is known to be the second leading arthritis-related condition according to the Arthritis Foundation, affecting about five percent of the total population with women four times more likely to develop the condition as compared to men. Many treatments are available to help people cope with its debilitating symptoms, and MSM fibromyalgia treatment appears to be one of the safest options as well as one that may be able to offer the most relief.

The substance MSM, or methyl-sulfonyl-methane is a naturally occurring compound with a sulfur base that is found in human diets. MSM is an odorless, water soluble and bitter white crystalline powder if seen in its purified state.

The substance occurs naturally in the environment and in the body by way of the food that we eat. It is a normal component of vegetables, meat and seafood. It can also be found in coffee, tea and chocolate. This substance is inert and non-toxic. It is even rated as one of the least toxic of substances in biology.

MSM is believed to have non-inflammatory effects in the body, the reason why it is being used for arthritic relief as well as for relief of some symptoms of fibromyalgia. It also allows people to better control pain, which makes fibromyalgia such a disabling disorder. Helping to control the pain can help sufferers being able to better cope up with the condition and the many other side effects that come with it.

MSM comes in seven forms, capsule or tablet form like a vitamin, powder, flakes or crystals, which you dissolve in liquid or as a cream or gel that you can rub into the effected area. The only real difference between these forms of MSM are the ways you get the MSM into your body, other than that the MSM is the same.

MSM doesn’t require a prescription, although it is always a good idea to keep your doctor appraised of what supplements you are taking, especially if you are pregnant. It may take up to a couple of months to see any improvement.

Fibromyalgia is a really troublesome condition to have. It effects the soft tissues of the body  - the muscles, tendons, and ligaments, which causes considerable pain after some time.

Its variety of symptoms include chronic fatigue which can last all day, a persistent burning feeling, soreness of the muscles and joints, pain and stiffness all over the body and frequent headaches.

Fibromyalgia can even cause irritable bowel, insomnia, anxiety and depression as a result of prolonged experience with the disorder. Different people may feel different levels of the symptoms at any one time, but the recurring feeling of pain and fatigue is always generally present.

The actual cause of fibromyalgia has not yet been found as yet. But doctors and researchers have been able to look through the many possible causes. Some believe that it might be related to arthritis. There are doctors who believe that it may be a result of some hormonal imbalance in the body. There are others who believe that it may be the result of the poor functioning of the thyroid gland. Genetics may play a part too, with sufferers more likely to be diagnosed if a close relative has the condition.

Fibromyalgia can also be very difficult to diagnose because many of the symptoms that it exhibits mimic those of other diseases. A diagnostic criteria has been drawn up to help doctor determine whether a patient has fibromyalgia or another unrelated condition.

MSM fibromyalgia treatment is not known to cure people of this disabling condition. Instead, it helps in treating the usually painful symptoms associated with the condition. The compound MSM is known to have pain reducing properties as well as help in increasing blood supply in the body that provides the relief to fibromyalgia sufferers. MSM treatments tend to be effective for as long as you are taking them and there is plenty of anecdotal evidence showing that it can provide real fibromyalgia pain relief.

    I appreciate your work. I have been wondering if I was just crazy with all these symptoms and so many doctors telling me I should consult a psychiatrist! I did want to say that I’ve been tracking this disease by keeping a journal and to my and my husband’s surprise we’ve found that I am profoundly affected with the change in barometric pressure. My husband can tell when the weather is going to turn bad by watching me and has been completely accurate for the last 5 years. I’m wondering, have you found this to be true in your research?

    Thanks again for the confirming information,
    Jewel Cumpiano

    I LOVE TO READ THE INFORMATION YOU GIVE US. I HAVE SO MANY OF THE SIGNS TO FIBROMYALGIA.NOT YET BEEN CONFIRM BY A PHYSICIAN, However I understand that it has been proven to be brought on by most of all a problem with the brain stem.Nervous system? Relates to why so much effects the nerves n mucles.And the joints hurts from the inflamation.
    My doctor in Texas explained that my brain stem has some damage and why I live in so much pain with all the signs of fibromyalgia.

    Jewel - some people’s FMS symptoms are aggravated by changes in barmoetric pressure. Usually low pressure. Other triggers can be cold drafts, swimming in cold water, high humidity, poor air conditioning and emotional stress among other triggers.

    Hello thank you so much for always working hard at providing information on fibromyalgia. Your research is valuable and I am sure helps many people…again thank you.

    Jewel Cumpiano-I have had fibromyalgia since 2000, diagnosed in 2002 still suffering from the pain unfortunately. I want to tell you I too know when the weather is going to change and several factors seem important and affect pain level. High humidity, barometric pressure changes (up or down) and sudden weather changes (I live in Michigan). What is strange for me is sometimes the humidity is high but barometric pressue is steady and I seem ok on those days. I think the barometric pressure affects us more than the humidity.
