Non-invasive non-drug no surgery treatment for nerve types of pain

The set up reminds me of the physiotherapy treatment the give you went you are injured... hook you up and run a current through you and tell you to crank it up slowly as you tolerate the current more... still do not quite get how that was helpful but I did rather have problems with some injuries and sprains when I was younger, although in One case a severe sprain the doc said if I had not been so flexible I could have broken some of the small bones in my foot... granted had I not been so flexible I would not have been able to fold my foot in half and step on it so badly as to sprain it so severely in the first place. Still find that hilarious, although it was a nasty one for sure. Anyway.... this hook up here looks to be good for neuropathic pain, RSD pain, nerve pain from shingles and other nerve pain related conditions.
It's now going through multiple tests at medical centers and pain centers around the country. Unlike traditional electrical devices, Calmare administers 16 different algorithm signals in three second intervals. Though it hasn't been proven yet, researchers believe the stimulation may be altering the brain's interpretation of the pain signal— changing it to a no-pain signal. According the Dr. Erick Bingham at Utah Valley Pain Relief, "it gives people another option which doesn't have any side effects," said Dr. Erick Bingham from Utah Valley Pain Relief. " While there are theories, we don't necessarily know how it works or why it works, but it does."...In a Johns Hopkins study, patients with post-shingles pain experienced a 95 percent average reduction in pain. Researchers continue documenting dramatic results as studies enlarge into wider population of pain victims.
In some cases it isn't getting rid of the pain but pretty dramatically reducing the pain levels... and when it comes to pain that means dramatically reducing the effects on mobility and quality of life.

100 Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

There was a site that had this and I had linked to it on Tumblr but it is gone. So I had to hunt down someone who found my post and posted the whole thing in a forum. Anyway it is around but I'm posting it here so I will not have to hunt it down to reference it. Now we all know the major symptoms are the wide-spread pain, but our pain isn't just muscle pain... it can be nerve types of pain as well, and the fatigue and the insomnia. And even among symptoms there are some far more frequent than others, but it should be said we have categories... like the cognitive dysfunction, which is a broad one that has more than one symptom and we often just say fibrofog. The insomnia... more than one sleeping disorder. So the list is interesting.




GENERAL
__ Fatigue, made worse by physical exertion or stress
__ Activity level decreased to less than 50% of pre-illness activity level
__ Recurrent flu-like illness
__ Sore throat

When I say I am good

When people ask me how I am feeling 99% of the time I am lying. I often say 'not bad', because I feel it is slightly more honest than 'good' or 'fine'. Got sick of fine. Anyway, I lie for many reasons. 



I'm having a good pain day: They happen and I'll say that I'm good, fine, not bad. I even feel like I can accomplish great things... in moderation. In which case, relatively speaking, for Me I am not actually lying. This is a Good pain day, it is Not Bad for me and I am Fine with it. I just don't want to explain: I just don't want to explain how crappy I feel and in which way I mean. Because I am tired of it. I just want to deal with it, without having to discuss it, mention it or have any sympathy expressed about it. Because it can be complicated. It may be a migraine with specific symptoms. Maybe it is a FM flare though. Or both. And then I have to explain what it is because most people think my migraines are the main issue but I could be FM…
