Ultrasound Helped My Fibromyalgia

I bought this product because I was familiar with the benefits of ultrasound from previous physical therapy sessions. My deductible on my insurance is much too high now to get the "professional" treatment available from a physical therapist, so I purchased this product to use at home. I have been very pleased with all aspects of my purchase.

First of all, the unit is sleek, light, well-made and durable. And the medicated lavender infusion gel is far better than any other plain conductive gel. There are easy-to-read instructions and customer service is just a phone call away. I had a question about treating more than one body area at a sitting and whether this would adversely affect the unit. I got to speak to a friendly and knowledgeable "real person" right away (which is not common these days with frustrating recordings that offer no service).

I considered this purchase as a long-term investment in my health, and that it was a bargain if it performed as stated. I have not been disappointed. I have fibromyalgia and myofascial pain, and a couple of old injuries from bumping around in life. Ultrasound increases blood flow and stimulates healing. This unit is well worth the money and does the job.

In my search for an ultrasound I investigated different companies. No matter who I spoke with at MendmeShop, they were informed, articulate, and I knew they would be there if I had a problem. I used it for my Fibromyalgia. I was concerned because the home ultrasounds are much less intense as far as what you get at the Chiropractor, but this worked great. The gel is expensive but I don't think I will be able to use the cheap stuff after the great relief I felt with the Ultrasound and Gel. The gel left me feeling soothed, and a cooling sensation. The relief and cooling sensation lasted a long time. So super happy with this product. I am considered a very bad case for Fibromyalgia, so this is a huge deal to have any relief. Thanks!

I must say I am very pleased with the results I have achieved so far with the MendMeShop ultrasound unit. I have received ultrasound in the past and it helped greatly. However, it was time consuming and rather inconvenient. I am glad I found your company and I am now able to use ultrasound from home. I have been using the device since June to treat knee osteoarthritis and a previous meniscus injury. Prior to purchasing the ultrasound, I suffered from rather significant pain on a regular basis. It was difficult to do every day activities such as grocery shopping and gardening. Now, after a few weeks of using ultrasound, I am able to do those activities plus I am even square dancing. I feel that your ultrasound unit is helping me regain a more normal and pain free life.

I purchased your ultrasound device and gel several months ago. I have used it as prescribed regularly with outstanding results. Several years ago, while playing football as a quarterback, I received a meniscus injury to my left knee. I have had physical therapy steroids, other drugs and natural medicine which helped for a time but the pain kept returning. I received a brochure through the internet. Purchased the device and used it regularly. During a x-ray review of my knee, I learned that the meniscus increased in thickness. Six months ago I was experiencing a bone on bone situation. The last x-ray showed the space between the bone increased to 3.25 mm, relieving the bone on bone and hence the pain I was experiencing. Thank you so much for letting me know of the device.

Please accept my warmest compliments on the courtesy and professionalism of Deb and Mallory. In the last few days, I have been researching portable home ultrasound devices and consequently spoke with a good number of representatives from a broad spectrum of competitors. I can attest that none of them were nearly as helpful and courteous as Deb and Mallory. These two ladies answered all my questions cheerfully and were a great help in providing all the information I needed. Consequently, I chose to make my purchase through your company. You can be justifiably proud to have such sparkling professionals as Deb and Mallory on your team. I look forward to telling others about my outstanding experience with your company, and wish you, and especially Deb and Mallory, every future success.

Fibromyalgia: Causes

How is it caused?
The research is ongoing!

The first thing to know about fibromyalgia is that both the cause and cure for it are unknown at this point. But, many scientists and doctors have theorized about its nature and what makes it occur. Also, fibromyalgia patients themselves have helped shed more light on fibromyalgia research by openly discussing their symptoms and what triggers them.

    Some factors which have been considered possible causes of fibromyalgia:
  • Genetic/Hereditary
  • Infections/Diseases
  • Physical Exertion or Inactivity
  • Emotional distress and/or trauma

The research is ongoing!

Recent discoveries and theories made by scientists and researchers also indicate that there is a considerable brain chemical factor involved with fibromyalgia. In the brain, there are certain chemicals called "neurotransmitters". These neurotransmitters transmit signals through your nervous system. They control many different things, such as sleep patterns, your appetite, sex drive, moods, and in particular, pain signals. If you have fibromyalgia, your nerves (the source of your sense of touch, pain, etc.) become very sensitive when stimulated/used over a long period of time. Your brain, particularly the neurotransmitters that recognize and signal pain, will start to work overtime. Also, over a period of time, your nerves and the neurotransmitters in your brain will start to become even more sensitive. This all means that, over time, you start to feel much more pain from much less physical contact, and you'll have a much lower pain threshold.

Am I at risk of getting Fibromyalgia?

If you find yourself falling under one or more of the following conditions/categories, you may be at risk of getting fibromyalgia.
  • Fibromyalgia is more common in women than in men, with an approximate 9 female cases for every male case.
  • Fibromyalgia occurs most often in younger to middle aged adults.
  • Trouble sleeping, or sleeping a normal amount of hours but still waking up tired may indicate fibromyalgia.
  • If your parents and/or grandparents have/had fibromyalgia, there is a good chance you may get it too.
  • Conditions such as depression, endometriosis, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, lupus erythematosus, headaches, restless leg syndrome and post-traumatic stress disorder have all shown to co-exist with and/or provoke fibromyalgia.
  • If you are prone to excessive stress or live and/or work in a very stressful environment, you may be at risk of getting fibromyalgia.

If you fall under one or more of these categories, see our Fibromyalgia Symptoms page. If you find yourself experiencing fibromyalgia symptoms, consult your doctor for a diagnosis and personalized treatment plan.
