Fibromyalgie and Stem Cells?

A couple of minutes ago, a patient asked about stem cells to treat Fibromyalgia. Someone in the South of Germany proposed this to her. There's neither study nor rationale for such a treatment. Maybe someone takes the FDA move to enable a study on ALS (Lou Gherig's disease) with stem cells to tell peple to use it in Fibromyalgia. The FDA permitted 12 patients suffering from ALS to be treated under study conditions. More at: As with all unproven claims and therapies: don't be a paying guinea pig!
