Hi, I don't have what you have, but I've heard of it and how awful it is and you have my sympathy! I was just reading an article in April's Reader's Digest about this very thing-a lady in an article had what you had and ran into a doctor who helped her with a surgery that isn't ablation-here is the link- . Really hope this helps, really hope you find relief! Tried to post this once before and it didn't go through so I hope this one does! Please come back and let us know how you're doing! Take care.
