Is it for me?
Quell Fibromyalgia is available by prescription for patients who have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and have high pain sensitivity. High pain sensitivity means that you are often tender to touch, may experience pain when exposed to cold or heat, and where even light touch can feel painful. If this sounds like you, then talk to your doctor about Quell Fibromyalgia.
How does it reduce fibromyalgia symptoms?
Quell Fibromyalgia is a wearable medical device that comfortably stimulates the nerves in your upper calf using precise electrical pulses, which is called neuromodulation. This nerve activity is hypothesized to activate a natural neurological response that reduces lower extremity pain and other symptoms of fibromyalgia. However, the specific biological mechanisms by which Quell Fibromyalgia reduces symptoms of fibromyalgia are uncertain at this time.
Is it affordable?
NeuroMetrix is committed to making Quell Fibromyalgia affordable for as many patients as possible. At this time, the treatment is available on a cash-pay basis, while we work to obtain health insurance coverage. You are not locked into a long term commitment; you decide if and when to refill. Quell Fibromyalgia qualifies as a medical expense for health savings (HSA) and flexible spending accounts (FSA).

Does Quell Fibromyalgia have side effects?
Quell Fibromyalgia is non-invasive and drug-free. It is not associated with significant side effects. A small number of patients may experience a rash under the Quell electrodes that is mild and usually resolves quickly.
What kinds of symptoms does Quell Fibromyalgia improve?
In a clinical trial of Quell Fibromyalgia, study subjects with a diagnosis of fibromyalgia and high pain sensitivity reported that their pain and other symptoms decreased. However, not every subject improved and every patient is different and may benefit from Quell Fibromyalgia in different ways. In addition, the specific biological mechanisms by which Quell Fibromyalgia reduces symptoms of fibromyalgia are uncertain at this time.1
Where on my body will I experience pain relief?
You should expect pain relief primarily in your lower extremity on the same side as the Quell device is located (you can alternate legs to get pain relief on both sides). Quell Fibromyalgia may also help you become more active, sleep better and improve your mood, all of which may improve your health and chronic pain in general.
What percentage of people with fibromyalgia will experience symptom relief?
The clinical data to answer this question is not yet available. As for any medical treatment, Quell Fibromyalgia will not work for everyone.
Do I wear one or two Quell Fibromyalgia devices?
You wear one device. You should regularly alternate legs in order to get pain relief on both sides and to reduce the risk of skin irritation. If you have more pain on one side, you may consider wearing the device on that side more frequently.
Can Quell Fibromyalgia be placed at different body locations?
The device should be worn on the upper calf. The User Manual describes a couple of alternative locations that can be used if the device cannot be placed on the upper calf.
