... pain. I've had this for 9 years and have taken medications the doc's perscribed. I'm off everything (med's) and hope to stay that way because med's seem to do alot to my body and mind.
I agree... I was only talking Paxil for the panic attacks. They seemed to be the worst and they affected me daily because I was always on edge. I didn't want to become dependent on taking any med's just out of fears that I have always had with prescription drugs. I have seen the best people's lives become completly ruined with prescription drugs. I stopped taking the Paxil, it's been about 2 weeks now. I have just been dealing with the pain and the other symtpoms that come along with it. It is not so bad now because I know the root to all of my issues. I have been well though, I won't blame it on my mind. But I know the more I think about it, the worse the tingling, pains, muscle spasms all get. So I try to remain stress free!
I think mslee83 makes an excellent point. When you focus on your pain (emotional or physical), you will only intensify your problems. A positive outlook can honestly help you to overcome many issues. I've worked with some very good hypnotists who are able to work wonders on this type of problem. Your subconscious mind is very capable of accepting positive suggestions. Hypnosis is used for many different ailments, including pain control, diabetes, fibromyalgia, high blood pressure, etc. Take a look online and see if you can find a good one in your area. Stay away from hypnotists who put on shows or entertain. You need a serious hypnotist. Hopefully one who may have a medical background. You could also look up hypnosis educators. This would be a good way to get a good reference. I wish you success in finding the help you need. Best wishes, keemo7
I would love to be able to be off medications, but i don't know how i would do it! I tried it for one year and I was soooo miserable nobody could live with me. I'm on 3 different kind of medication - no narcotics and I seem to be doing 80% better. If you have any secrets please share them. Good luck and best wishes!
I agree with the hypnotherapy idea. I actually am a certified hypnotherapist, but have not practiced for awhile. I know for a fact that a CD I listened to significantly had an impact on the last time I went into remission and I was in remission for two whole years. It was so blissful, I forgot I even had the darn disease and bit off more than I could chew physically, stressfully and emotionally and WHAM! "It's back". I can't seem to find the CD, but I think it was called Transcending Pain by the Falcone's couple. If anyone has heard of it or knows where to get it please let me know. I had great success with it, I felt my whole body release several myofascial trigger points. I was shaking and trembling, but what a huge release. Very helpful for those of us who "shove" emotions or feel stress physically as well as emotionally.
