multiple pain conditions
ellsworth52 posted:
I have acute Chronic Migraines (over 40 years), Fibromyalgia (over 20 years), and IV CRPS in my right hand/forearm (over 10 years). I have tried Neurontin, Cymbalta, Lyrica, Morphine, Hydrocodone, and Topamax, without any significant relief and horrific side effects. I have also undergone PT, massage therapy, electric stimulation, nerve block injections, and a spinal cord neuro-stimulator. These proved to be more detrimental to my conditions than beneficial, so they were all discontinued. I have slowed my life down, I take hot soaking baths frequently, I use heat wraps, I exercise lightly, and I take naps as needed. I have a very supportive family, a busy life, and little stress in my life. I take Paxil Amitriptyline, Zomig, Actonel and Nexium regularly. But...I am not ready to give up entirely, at finding something that would give me relief, either significant or occasional.
Does anyone here use Acupuncture for these pain conditions? Does it help? Is there anything I haven't tried yet as far as you can tell?
