Results of a study published in spring 2015 indicate that longstanding treatment for headache may also benefit people with fibromyalgia. The treatment is known as occipital nerve stimulation, or C2 nerve field stimulation. This treatment involves surgical implantation of a small device at the base of the skull. Once implanted, the device can be connected to a power source that sends electrical impulses to the nerve. That being said, this is more invasive than some other forms of treatment and that means there is more risk involved when it is implemented.
The study group was relatively small, so everything I am telling you here is preliminary. suppose Further studies would give a better idea of how beneficial this would be for people with fibromyalgia. Early results show an overall 50% improvement in quality of life for subjects in the study.
