Quell: My Favorite Tool for Reducing Pain
Since my fibromyalgia diagnosis, I’ve tried so many drugs, supplements and other products in an attempt to find something to dull the pain. I’ve found a few things that help, but the effects are usually minimal. Even opioids haven’t worked for me, although I admit my experience with them has been limited.
Quell Wearable Pain Relief
A few months ago, I had the opportunity to try out the Quell wearable pain relief device. You may have seen the commercials for Quell on TV or had an ad show up in your Facebook feed. Quell is a small, rectangular device that’s worn an inch or two below the knee. It simulates a cluster of sensory nerve fibers in that area and triggers the body’s natural pain blockers. Unlike TENS units, I do not have to apply the device to the area of the body where I’m feeling pain.
Quell is used for the relief of nerve, arthritic/joint, leg/foot, lower back and widespread pain. In a recent clinical study, which included fibromyalgia patients, 81 percent reported an improvement in chronic pain and 67 percent were able to reduce their medications.
I’ve wasted thousands of dollars on doctors and products that don’t really work, so I was skeptical of Quell’s claims. How in the heck was a black box strapped on my leg going to do anything for pain? Well, I’ve been using my Quell device since April, and it is now my No. 1, go-to tool for pain relief. I love it so much that I talk it up to anyone who suffers from fibromyalgia pain, and I wanted to share it with my readers here at National Pain Report, too!
I apologize ahead of time if this article sounds like an advertisement for Quell. I swear I’m not trying to sell you anything. I just happen to love this device so much that I want to share my experience in hopes that others might find relief as well.
