Natural pain relief: Capsicum, lavender and peppermint essential oils can help relieve fibromyalgia pain

(Natural News) Essential oils are known to effectively alleviate pain and increase the energy produced by the cells in the tissues. Given these beneficial effects, researchers believe that the oils drawn from capsicum, lavender, and peppermint could be potential therapies for fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is indicated by chronic pain, constant fatigue, and sharp changes in mood. There are only a handful of treatments that can...

Background: Our knowledge of central sensitization (CS) in chronic low back pain (CLBP) is limited. 2011 fibromyalgia criteria and severity scales (2011 FM survey) have been used to determine FM positive as a surrogate of CS. The major features of CS including widespread hyperalgesia and dysfunction of the descending inhibitory pathways can be identified by pressure pain threshold (PPT) and conditioned pain modulation (CPM) tests. The purpose of the study was to examine neurophysiological characteristics and psychosocial symptoms in a subgroup of FM-positive CLBP compared with FM-negative CLBP patients. Methods: A tot...

Objective: Evidence suggests that there is an association between chronic pain and disruption of the body schema. We tested the hypothesis in fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS). Materials and Methods: We investigated distinct perceptual aspects of the body schema both in a sample of patients with FMS and in pain-free controls. Performances on the left/right judgment task were measured; tactile acuity was assessed by using the 2-point discrimination test. Furthermore, we evaluated sensations evoked by tactile stimulation with von Frey filaments to body parts that were experiencing pain. Anomalous sensations elicited by sensor...

This study aimed to identify relationships between sensory function and pain in 3 common pain conditions (arthritis, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome [CRPS] and fibromyalgia syndrome [FMS]) and pain-free participants. Sensory abnormalities are known to be concomitant with some types of chronic pain but comparison across pain conditions using existing research is difficult due to methodological differences. Pragmatic Quantitative Sensory Testing (QST) methods were used. Materials and Methods: Hot and cold sensitivity, light touch threshold (LTT), two-point discrimination and pain threshold were assessed in 143 participants...

Abstract Fibromyalgia-associated chronic pain occurring without organic causes exerts negative effects on patients' quality of life, thereby necessitating the development of superior drugs. Since non-organic pain in patients with fibromyalgia occurs without external stimuli, an endpoint measure that reflects patients' spontaneous pain should be implemented in preclinical research. The present study is the first to apply the rat grimace scale (RGS), a facial expression-dependent measure developed for quantifying spontaneous pain, to the rat with reserpine-induced myalgia, an animal model of fibromyalgia exhibiting ...

This study aims to analyze the effectiveness, cost-utility and benefits of a multicomponent therapy on quality of life (main variable), functional impact, mood and pain in people suffering from FM that attend primary care centers (PCCs) of the Catalan Institute of Health (ICS). Methods and analysis: A 2-phase, mixed methods study has been designed following Medical Research Council guidance. Phase 1: Pragmatic randomized clinical trial with patients diagnosed with FM that attend one of the 11 PCCs of the ICS Gerència Territorial Terres de l’Ebre. We estimate a total sample of 336 patients. The control group...
