OBJECTIVE: Fibromyalgia (FM) is a concerning chronic disease showing as widespread pain, muscle stiffness, sleep disturbances, chronic fatigue, and depressed mood, for which no sound therapy is yet available to date. In this article we assessed a wider patients’ cohort the efficacy of oxygen-ozone autohemotherapy (O2-O3-AHT) previously reported.

PATIENTS AND METHODS: A number of 200 FM-patients accessed the study and were treated with 3-4 runs of O2-O3-AHT, following their signed consent. A modified 10 points-PI-NRS were used to evaluate pain intensity before and after the conclusion of the complete ozone-treatment cycle (1 month). Kruskall-Wallis’ test and other statistics were used at p<0.05 level of significance.

RESULTS: A quite complete rehabilitation of the musculoskeletal function and of the overall arthralgia was observed in 76% of the patients at one month of follow-up. The number of patients having a reduction in the PI-NRS score from 10 (the maximal observed) to 3 (including 10-1 and 10-2) following only two runs of O2-O3-AHT was 23.5%, whereas only 17.5% did not show any significant improvement (ΔPI-NRS = 0 or 1), so assessing that the efficacy of O2-O3-AHT, independently from ages, encompassed at least 41% in a moderate way and 64.5% of the treated patients, as a whole.

CONCLUSIONS: Oxygen-ozone autohemotherapy represents a formidable therapeutic approach for FM, deserving further studies to be made in order to fully elucidate ozone effect of this pathology.
