Best Topical Creams for Fibromyalgia 2020

Topical creams are one of a few ways to manage fibromyalgia symptoms. A benefit to this is having additional options for chronic pain in case you run out of one of the other creams/medications. It’s also beneficial to have an option to use when your other options aren’t enough to help with the pain and other symptoms.  I have personally used each of the following topical creams for chronic pain and recommend each of them.

Other Topical Creams for Fibromyalgia

Whenever I post about a new cream on social media, I get comments about other creams that are effective for fibromyalgia symptoms or chronic pain. Here are some other topical creams for fibromyalgia (I have not used these and do not know firsthand their effectiveness) –

Frida Botanicals Magnesium Cream


Frida Botanicals is a line of products crafted and created by Dr. Ginevra Liptan, founder of the Frida Center. Dr. Liptain is a doctor who specifically treats fibromyalgia and lives with fibromyalgia, too. She started her line of products with a CBD oil and has since moved onto other products.

The magnesium cream helps relax muscles by “replenishing local extracellular ionic magnesium stores”. As it’s name states, it provides ionic magnesium through topical application and is made with certified organic ingredients.
