Freezing Nerves, An Effective Way To Treat Chronic Pain

Apr 17, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Medical News Today

A form of treatment called cyroneurolysis is being used for chronic pain caused by nerve damage; it involves using a tiny ball of ice to interrupt pain signals and eliminate pain while the nerves slowly recover.

Hi I have been receiving nerve blocks for chronic pain. I suffer with fibromyalgia and spinal stenosis in my neck middle of my bac and lower. I have been suffering like this for 5 years with no pain relief. It is un humane. I am wondering if anyone has had these blocks and do they work?

I have been experiencing the exact same thing for the last five years as well! I have gone through all different treatments, with no lasting luck, the pain comes back. It feels like water boarding. But I am to receive the cyrogenic procedure hopefully in AUG. Good luck! ill let you know how it goes! hope to find you on a good day, if not, hang in there because there are so many different treatment routes that work for some and others. you will find one, patience is the hardest thing, but just try to grin and bear.

Oh and I meant to say that I suffer from Charcot Marie Tooth disease, spinal stenosis and have been told that Fibromyaglia due to hyper sensitivity all over my body.I have arthritis as well. But I do have better days then I had for 5 yrs, I started a new dr in March, a lot of drs have pushed me to the side, some have helped to the best they can, but couldnt quite figure it out. I had been recieving the blocks as well and they helped for a few weeks. You really dont want to get stuck on meds either, becuse your body will adjust and they wont hardly help at all in the end, they also come will make you toxic with all that, you dont need anymore problems. So yoga, and speak to the dr about a once a day er med, it wont be down to a 1 but on a normal day its atleast a 7-12 if youre working and have other obligations. But if you ever have any questions let me know.

Thanks to dea thugs and their silly 'war on drugs' pain patients are forced to suffer horribly. Instead of using medications that actually work doctors make patients go through treatments that are not effective and force them to take meds that have life threatening side effects. Welcome to the police state of american medicine!
