Has Anyone Ever Used Or Knows Someone Who Has Used Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment For Their Fibromyalgia?

Has Anyone Ever Used Or Knows Someone Who Has Used Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment For Their Fibromyalgia?

All I’m finding is one research team’s write-up from their studies. It’s been floated around for three years by this same team. I want to know from someone first hand what results came from it.

I used to treat patients with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for eight years. Unfortunately, Fibro is not approved by FDA as an indicated condition so insurance won’t cover it and many places won’t even treat.

Hi there. I am also looking into Hyperbaric treatment and am hoping to get on the list for it soon. It seems that volunteer, charity-run centres are very affordable, compared to other places. Here's someone's story I came across on the internet......

I have read research on this for either fibro or neurodegenerative issues like stroke, healing of stubborn injury or infections etc butdo not think it is available for us unless you pay for it, which isvery dear!

I just don’t see much research on it. I’m not one to spend big bucks on something that has a slim chance of working while knowing the negative possibilities associated with being in a hyperbaric chamber. I’m curious for more research.
