I have been researching Apitherapy mainly bee venom/sting therapy. My Wife suffers from a condition called Fibromyalgia. From what I have been able to ascertain, this condition causes pain in different areas of the body mainly joint and muscle. She has been to several different Doctors and is taking various medications with limited success. Three nights ago, I came home from work to find her hurting so bad that she was crying. The last time this happened she had herniated a disk in her neck between C6 and C7. This required surgery the next day to correct.
Anyway enough with the background. We have been told that fibromyalgia is a neurological disorder that is basically over stimulated nerves that the brain equates to pain. I have read reports that claim that bee venom had provided relief to sufferers of MS which is another neurological disorder.
After the last attack, I finally was able to talk her into giving the bees a try. The results were immediate and profound. The pain in her hands disappeared almost immediately. We have been using stings to treat some pain sites like local anesthetic others pain was dissipated with a couple of shots to the shoulder. The total number of shot she has received are seven in two days. At first she made little girl noises when she took a sting, now she comes to me and points out the area for the next one. Her reactions to the stings are minimal, much less than mine.
I don't know if this information will be helpful or not but, I felt that it needed to be shared.
