It's Frequent Specific Microcurrent which is a new type of electrical stimulation which utilizes resonance effects of tissues and conditions (I have a long list) to create beneficial changes by using the same current your body produces.
Has anyone tried FSM for fibromyalgia?
Added 6 Jan 2013:
The technology has been clinically proven to reduce pain and to improve a variety of conditions, such as fibromyalgia. Not to be confused with the old type of e-stim. It's fairly new.
I'm so sorry, I've just now gotten your question! I would have been here straight away, had I known you asked, but I've too many emails in my inbox!
So, after all of that superfluous info, I'm sorry to say that I've not tried FSM!
Yet, I may. You must have some very wicked knowledge about fibro that I am ignorant of, as I've never heard of this treatment before. I'll ask my rheum doc about it at my next appointment. She isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer, but she MAY have heard of FSM. I may call the nurse at her office today, just to see what they think of this treatment, if I do I will get back to you asap my dear friend! Promise.
It sounds like it's some kind of new offshoot of biofeedback, which I've heard good things about for a whole slew of conditions. I would personally love to try biofeedback, but it's not covered by my insurance and it's expensive and I don't work and I'm still fighting to try to get onto disability, so 0 income=0 out-of-pocket treatments for me :/
Cupcake, So glad that you are trying this. I've never heard of it. I would be very interested in whether it helps you. Please let us all know. What other medical conditions is it supposed to help?
I wouldn't put this in a league with biofeedback. Biofeedback was very expensive and I couldn't keep the patience and keep putting out the money to continue trying with it. My excellent neurologist told me that with the severity of my pain he didn't think that biofeedback would help me. But maybe someone with less pain it might help.
