... endured the first of three last week.I had them several years ago and then the pain management Dr had me under anesthetic and I noticed only a slight improvement on my pain levels. This recent series which started last week the Dr had me do it awake. It was horrible. My right arm went totaly weak and the electric sensations that I usually have from fibro just exploded running up and down my back which I still feel. I will not continue the series. Is there any other methods of reducing my pain levels other than impaling my spinal chord with needles?
