Fibromyalgia, a chronic pain syndrome, can be debilitating. For Colorado medical marijuana users, the answer is simple. Use of the drug in scientific studies has shown that the THC found in marijuana may help decreasechronic pain caused by Fibromyalgia. Other symptoms of the syndrome include hypoglycemia, insomnia, depression, fatigue, urinary complications and skin conditions. Through the use of medical marijuana, Colorado patients are able to effectively manage these other symptoms in addition to managing their pain. Marijuana creates a euphoric effect, which helps lift feelings of depression and is useful for managing insomnia as well. Currently undergoing THC therapy trials is a synthetic marijuana pills known as Nabilone, which has shown to greatly reduce pain and anxiety in Fibromyalgia patients.
