Six million Americans, mostly women, are affected by fibromyalgia. It is usually genetic and typically appears after physical and/or emotional trauma. It is classified as a type of chronic fatigue syndrome resulting in symptoms of fatigue, sleeplessness, pain and cramping in muscle tissues, and sore joints. The newest research states fibromyalgia is caused by sleep disorders and the cramping in the muscle tissues is not an inflammation by rather results from a metabolic imbalance. It is recommended that eating more foods high in essential fatty acids such as meat, fish and fish oils, milk, and eggs will help minimize discomfort. This may help explain why it is more common in vegetarians.
Exercise and diet will also help relieve some of the pain. Some women suffering from fibromyalgia after car accidents involving spinal cord trauma also find pain relief by using magnets. Magnets are believed to rebalance the electromagnetic field in the body and relieve tension in muscles and joints. Although there is no valid scientific evidence proving this theory, it is believed the placebo effect is behind the pain relief.

Emu Oil, extremely high in essential fatty acids, can be taken internally (one teaspoon per day) or applied topically (penetrates deep into muscle tissues) to relieve pain and cramping.
