    Here in Israel a friend of mine just finished taking part in a trial using trans magnetic stimulation on fibromyalgia.
    They only tested to see improvement of pain.

    My friend has CFS on top of fibromyalgia but she got accepted in the trial.

    Unfortunatly the treatment did not help her CFS or pain. It is supposed to be brilliant for depression though.
