Magnetic Blanket For Pain

Like many Fibro suffers, I am getting desperate for something to help me get pain relief. Has anyone tried a magnetic blanket that you sleep on? I saw a doctor treat chronic back pain on one of the Discovery Chanels with strong magnetic therapy and according to the patient, he is pain free now. The theory is the magnetic field interupts the electrical pain impulses to the brain. Is this blanket just another quack product or has anyone gotten any pain relief from it.

Re: Magnetic Blanket For Pain

There is some evidence that strong electromagnets, used correctly, can treat certain pain conditions.

Blankets or bracelets or clothing with little magnets sewn into it? There's mountains of evidence that those are completely useless and have no biological effects whatsoever. Save your money, spend it on nutritious food or massages or something that might actually help.
