IS CBD SUITABLE FOR FIBROMYALGIA PAIN?…

CBD is an effective therapeutic agent. It can be used to deal with uncommon varieties of epilepsy and suggests a great promise in the remedy of issues for other conditions like multiple sclerosis. Outside of the clinic, CBD is gaining traction in the fitness industry. It is governing our mood and enhances the intellectual and bodily wellness of humans all over the world.

Anyone living with a chronic condition will know just how much it interferes with each and every aspect of your life. Since prescription pain medications are limited by countless risks and side effects, many are turning to CBD to ease symptoms of chronic conditions, including fibromyalgia.

I wrote an article last year on CBD, IT’S BENEFITS & AWARENESS DAY 8TH AUGUST, which explains a bit more about the different types of products available and how they can help with some health problems.

CBD, which is short for cannabidiol, is an active ingredient found in the Cannabis sativa plant. It is one of over 100 natural cannabinoids, but unlike its psychoactive counterpart tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), CBD cannot get you high.

CBD merges with our body’s endocannabinoid system (ECS), which a biological network that plays a crucial role in governing our mood, energy levels, immune system, appetite, sleep, pain approach, and much more.

With many fibromyalgia patients finding it hard to find the right treatment/medication for the pain associated with fibromyalgia, a number of patients have turned to CBD products to help.

Many patients have found CBD to be a blessing in reducing pain and inflammation, improving moods and sleep, and helping to combat fibromyalgia fatigue. There is also some up-and-coming scientific evidence to support this.

One reason CBD can help with the pain in fibromyalgia is by helping to regulate ECS activity, which is responsible for maintaining a homeostatic balance in the body, particularly between the immune system and the nervous system. 

CBD has potent anti-inflammatory properties, CBD can be effective pain relief, particularly for neuropathic pain, and CBD can also be hugely favourable to our mental well-being. It is not uncommon for people living with fibromyalgia to experience anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders. Our mood is largely dependent on our serotonin levels, CBD may help to alleviate symptoms of anxiety and depression.

CBD can be used as a natural sleep aid, so it may help to remedy some of the sleeping problems often associated with fibromyalgia which scientists think may help by reducing pain or boosting our serotonin.   

Cannabis has shown to have a significant positive effect on fibromyalgia symptoms, but there hasn’t yet but it is early days on research into the effect of CBD alone.

Howeverhigh CBD/low THC strains of cannabis seem to be more effective at managing pain than high THC/low CBD strains, which is some pretty solid evidence of CBD’s pain-relieving properties.    

According to an article in Leafie The World Health Organisation has said that CBD is a safe and well-tolerated substance, even at high doses. The only reported side effects include nausea, appetite changes, and fatigue, but these are rare and minor in comparison to many prescription drugs.

It is, however, important to speak to your doctor before choosing to take CBD, especially if you’re on medication. This is because CBD has been shown to interact with some other drugs, which can be harmful to our liver. If you feel as though CBD could benefit you more than the medication that you are currently on, do not make the switch until you have spoken to a professional.

10 TIPS FOR NEWLY DIAGNOSED FIBROMYALGIA SUFFERERS…

If you have been newly diagnosed with Fibromyalgia here are a few tips to help you deal with the condition.

1. Never be afraid to ask for help, be it with the shopping, cooking or cleaning. As most sufferers tend to ‘look fine’ most people do not realise the pain they are suffering inside, so if you don’t ask you won’t get help. 2. If work is leaving you exhausted and in pain, then design a flexible plan that works for you and your boss. Ask about working from home part-time, or setting your hours for earlier or later in the day so you can be more productive, during this busy time.

2. At the office, rearrange your workspace for comfort and easy accessibility. A telephone headset, keyboard tray, or other products may help put less stress on your body.

3. Don’t try to always put on a happy face. Your loved ones need to know what makes your symptoms worse.

4. Rest, rest and more rest, every little helps to recharge your batteries. When you feel that overwhelming urge to sleep try and get forty winks.

5. Support groups can play an important part in the lives of people with chronic illnesses. Whether in person or online, they offer a safe place to talk with others who may share your frustrations and concerns.

6. Tomorrow is another day and with Fibromyalgia tomorrow can be a more comfortable day, so try to not think negative when you are having a bad day.

7. Keep all your ‘helpful’ pain relievers on hand, be it a hot water bottle, pillow, cushion or whatever you have that helps your pain.

8. A useful purchase for going out is a lightweight portable stadium seat which you can find on Amazon.

9. Also a sciatica support cushion can be great to have in your car while travelling. I could not manage many journeys without mine. There are lots to choose from.

10.This is an Adjustable Tripod Walking Stick and seat. If, like me you cannot stand for long in a queue then this is just perfect. The Height adjustable walking stick seat is designed to provide support and comfort and provides a stable and comfortable seated position when you need a break from standing.
