Cortical electrostimulation for Fibromyalgia
Monday 30 January 2012
In noninvasive cortical electrostimulation, a practitioner attaches electrodes to the outside of the head and delivers an electric current to the cerebral cortex (outer layer of gray matter on the upper part of the brain.)
In this study, researchers say participants had modest improvements in pain, tender point count, fatigue and sleep without significant side effects. They're recommending it as a part of the fibromyalgia treatment regimen, not as a stand-alone treatment. (It's rare for any single treatment to adequately manage all fibromyalgia symptoms.)
Have you tried this form of electrostimulation for fibromyalgia? How did it work?
