HBOT is a breath of fresh air to fibromyalgia sufferer

In 2008, after many years of feeling unwell, Juliette Gale from Milstead, Kent, was diagnosed with fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia, a long term condition that causes widespread pain throughout the body, has many side effects that can cause severe disruption to a sufferer’s life. Juliette experienced several symptoms including irritable bowel syndrome, chronic tiredness and very painful periods, as well as joint and muscle pain. These caused her much discomfort and she spent lots of her time lying on the sofa trying to relax and relieve the pain she felt.

Furthermore, her fibromyalgia stopped her from being able to take part in day-to-day activities, and she began to only leave the house for very short periods of time. As time went on, she started to feel depressed which was hard not only for her but also her family.

Over time, Juliette tried many different treatments to ease her fibromyalgia, including acupuncture, pain killers, exercise, and steroid injections. Although some of these helped her symptoms for short periods of time, nothing helped her to feel completely pain-free.

Commenting on Juliette’s treatment, The Oxygen Clinic said: “HBOT helps to boost oxygen supply to the body’s tissues which helps muscles and joints to recover. In Juliette’s case, this was extremely beneficial as a lot of the pain she was feeling was in her joints. The rapid progress she made was wonderful to see, and I’m glad that she found her treatment so beneficial.”

Several months after her first course of HBOT, Juliette is thrilled to be living a much more normal life again. She commented: “Overall, my symptoms are much improved and I can’t recommend The Oxygen Clinic enough!”

 

Back to Case Studies

The team at The Oxygen Clinic was very welcoming and helpful, and I booked 10 sessions straight away. After my first session, I noticed that my body felt quite tingly but had no negative side effects. I went back for nine more sessions and noticed after the fifth session that I no longer had any pain at all. This was the first time in many years that my body was completely pain free. I felt elated.
