A community sample of 73 females and 32 males aged 85 and over underwent a standardised examination at home. Musculoskeletal pain was reported by 57% of those interviewed(1).

                        The Treatment

B. Alternative treatments 
Several types of alternative medicine have some potential for future clinical research. However, due to methodological inconsistencies across studies and the small body of evidence, no firm conclusions can be made at this time. we present here some of alternatives which have played an important role in human history for treatment of Fibromyalgia, according to the DePaul University(231) and Dicle University(232), in review of information regarding the efficacy of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM).
6. Chlorella
A common single-celled green alga of both terrestrial and aquatic habitats has been explored for commercial profits due to its health effects. According to webMD, the benefit of chlorella products can vary significantly depending geographic cultivation, time to harvest and process.
The supplement has been used in complementary and alternative medicine for treatment among individuals with fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS)( 248).
According to the study of 55 subjects with fibromyalgia, 33 with hypertension, and 9 with ulcerative colitis, conducted by Virginia Commonwealth University's Medical College of Virginia, dietray supplement of chlorella not only reduced high blood pressure, lowered serum cholesterol levels, accelerated wound healing, and enhanced immune functions, but also relieved symptoms, improved quality of life, and normalized body functions in patients with fibromyalgia(249).
Dr. Merchant RE and colleagues at the Medical College of Virginia Richmond also support the use of chlorella to relieve the symptoms of fibromyalgia in some patients, but suggested a larger, more comprehensive double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial in these patients is necessary(250).
