That's one kick-ass hyperbaric chamber!!  Wahoooo!!  Bring it on baby, I'm game!  :clapping:

 Call me skeptical, but I'm more interested to see what the results are in the long term...I can believe feeling better right after the

treatment, but is it temporary or an actual cure? It will be interesting to see how it pans out, and is it affordable? The Insurance folks

are gonna want hard numbers before they cover this.

The artical didn't say how or why it works.
I've often thought a hyperbaric might help the way I feel but how could it cure a brain pathology?

It is what it is...


Here is an article from the National Pain Report, referencing the same Israeli study, and goes on to say " They are reporting some success. The research found that women with fibromyalgia were able to drastically reduce, or even eliminate, their use of pain medication following hyperbaric oxygen treatment.

The TAU researchers believe they have also identified the primary factor causing fibromyalgia: the disruption of the brain mechanism for processing pain.

"As a physician, the most important finding for me is that 70 percent of the patients could recover from their fibromyalgia symptoms," said Dr. Shai Efrati of TAU's Sagol School of Neuroscience. "The most exciting finding for the world of research, however, is that we were able to map the malfunctioning brain regions responsible for the syndrome."

The clinical trial exposed women to two months of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. It found significant changes in the brain activity and symptoms of 70 percent of participants. 60 women who had been diagnosed with fibromyalgia at least two years earlier were in the trial." Where this doesn't sound real promising, it's a start.

WebMD has an article on the same study, don't know if it tells anything better, but possibly.

Insurance is the controlling factor at the present time.  Until more studies are done showing it's effectiveness, the insurance companies are considering it to be experimental, thus not paying for it.  That puts it out of an affordable range financially unless you can get into a study that is funded.
