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: Symptoms


What are the symptoms of fibromyalgia?

The diagnosis of fibromyalgia is tricky, due to the fact that the symptoms are often not visible. The defining symptom of fibromyalgia is the pain. People who suffer from fibromyalgia experience chronic pain and a heightened sensitivity to pain, especially at certain "trigger points" on their bodies.

    Other symptoms of fibromyalgia include:
  • chronic exhaustion
  • fatigue in your muscles and/or tendons
  • muscle twitching
  • trouble with swallowing
  • trouble breathing
  • nausea
  • headaches
  • "fibro-fog"- short term memory loss associated with fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia Trigger Points
This diagram shows the 18 fibromyalgia "trigger points"- 8 on the front of the body, 10 on the back of the body. These points are the ones which are usually the most sensitive to pain, and serve as part of the fibromyalgia diagnosis process. Pressure can be applied to these points to test for pain sensitivity.



Diagnosing Fibromyalgia

The American College of Rheumatology states the factors for being diagnosed with fibromyalgia as:

  • Chronic pain, over every section of the body.
  • Increased sensitivity to pain at at least 11 out of the 18 fibromyalgia "trigger points".
Talk to your doctor.

If you think you may be suffering from fibromyalgia, consult your doctor for a diagnosis and a personalized treatment plan. A common test for fibromyalgia pain is the doctor applying gentle pressure to certain "trigger points" around your body. This will test your level of pain sensitivity, and therefore, the possibility of you having fibromyalgia. Additionally, your doctor may want to do blood tests to rule out other conditions which might be causing the symptoms you're experiencing.

Due to the unfortunate fact that there is no known cure for fibromyalgia, the only option is to treat the symptoms. Please see our Fibromyalgia Treatments page for more information.
