I was listening to a call-in radio show today about fibromyalgia and other types of pain.

The doctor mentioned MIRE (monochromatic infrared photo energy) or Anodyne therapy which, he said, has been helpful for some types of neuropathy. I had never heard of this before, so I looked it up and found this:

www.wellness.com/reference/health-and-wellness/anodyne-therapy

This may be worth looking into. I don't know if many insurance companies would cover it, but the article says it's "relatively inexpensive" and some insurance companies apparently do cover it.

Just thought I'd pass this info along.

Is anyone familiar with it? Have you tried it, and, if so, any success?

Hi luvs , i had read about this years ago, but it seemed to only be offered locally in nursing homes..

Somehow i went from that research to Cold Laser..which i use at home.

I will go to the link..i am thinking i read about the anodyne at whitaker wellness

Ok i cross referenced and it says anodyne is a brand name of cold laser...

I use an infrared heating pad, as well as the light relief device and others.

I can reduce an area of pain from a 7 to a 4 with cold laser quickly , and at times the pain can stay low for several days.

I respond to it very well..i just never felt that i could spend that much time getting therapy so i chose devices for home use.

My daughter just recently had medical grade laser on a chronic pain issue..it did seem to help her feel better faster..her chiro gave her this treatment.

I have read that many chiropractors use laser now to add to what they can do physically.

Thanks for the response, Lj! I just briefly read through your post, as I have some other things that are on my 'to do' list this evening. I'll respond later. Looks like good info. Thanks again!

Thanks again, Lj! I'm like you: it's not easy to run to therapy (have to go many miles from home), so I, too, prefer devices for home use.

Would you mind sharing where you found an infrared heating pad and also the light relief device? Do you mean the light relief device is the same as using cold laser? It all sounds very promising! Glad you are getting some relief.

This is new info for me (and I'm guessing for most people here), and who of us don't want to find more ways to battle this irritating 'stuff'? Always happy to find new ways to 'navigate.' Thanks for any help. :)

Hi luvz,

The infared heating pad is called thermotex..i remember it was pricey but is still working fine 12 years later..

Dr. Susan Lark had written articles about light therapies for fibromyalgia..which led me to try the light relief product (amazon)
If i remember right it uses both red and infared. It has a flexible detachable pad.. Which is helpful especially when i get chest wall pain, which i have always had with fibro.

Studying this ,eventually led me to the laser touch one, which is cold laser. I had an old ankle injury that caused so much pain..the laser could bring it from a level 8 pain to a three in 4 minutes..and relieve it for several days.

Have had this disease for decades, lots of research , and add about one new tool a year.

Knowing when i go into a flare , i can treat ,and get relief is very empowering..its not always easy, but removes some stress and gets me back active faster..i have read that athletes often use the devices to recover from injury faster..

I forget to be proactive at times..my back can get bad. When it starts nagging me , my hubby will laser it for 4 minutes and it is better for days..its a wand style and i can reach most of my back myself, but shhh 😊 we don't have to tell him that..

If you google , you can research different ones, maybe check out Dr Lark and Dr. Whitaker and what they write on fibromyalgia, plus the users of different devices.

Lj
