5. Herbs and supplements can help reduce nerve and muscle pain
Nutritional deficiency is one of the main culprits behind fibromyalgia pain. When your body runs low on minerals, the pain seems to be increased. Here are just some that can help you:
- Magnesium and acetyl-L-carnitine have been shown to ease painful fibromyalgia symptoms.
- Medical marijuana can also reduce your symptoms. Those who have used medical marijuana for their fibromyalgia symptoms felt a reduction of pain, were relaxed, experienced an increase in sleepiness, and felt peace in their body and mind.
- Vitamin D can ease your pain as well. Studies show that those with fibromyalgia who were low on vitamin D levels had debilitating pain, but once they took the correct number of supplements, the pain seemed to decrease.
