There has been a new approach recently for treatment of Fibromyalgia symptoms that seems to hold some promise, but it is too early to have a clear opinion of their effectiveness. There has been some success in the use of enzyme therapy with the product called Neprinol AFD. Neprinol is a systemic enzyme that works to stimulate the immune system, and helps with cellular repair. While the success with Neprinol enzyme therapy is encouraging, I would have to report that the verdict on its success or failure still remains to be seen.
Other approaches to treatment are numerous, and would include:
- Trigger point injections with lidocaine
- Acupuncture and acupressure
- Biofeedback techniques to control the pain
- Electrical stimulation of targeted pain areas
- Guaifenesin Therapy
- Hyperbaric oxygen treatment
- Nerve blocks
You can see from this list that science is investing quite a bit of time and effort to address a wide variety of treatment approaches for Fibromyalgia symptoms. One final note to add is there has been some promising research on the use of stem cells in the treatment of Fibromyalgia. Stem cell research is something that carries a lot of baggage politically. However, the work done in this field does suggest that it could hold some hope for another approach to treatment of Fibromyalgia in the future.
