  • No More DMSO

    I am done with the DMSO. I tried 3. I haven't gotten better and I actually fell fluey for about 48 hours afterwards. I am now being referred to a pain clinic. Can anyone tell me what to expect? Thanks, Dana

    The pain clinic where I went to gave me blue sheets to fill out, and it was what type of pain, where is, how bad is it on a scale of 1-10. There are figures and you pencil in with colored pencils what kind of pain and where. Then they did an exam on me, pressing me and asking about the pain. Then I talked to the doctor, and we went through all the treatments, both medication and non-meds, and surgeries, and we decided what path would be best to try at that point.

    Let me know how you do.

    Hugs and love,
    Mommy to 2 crazy, wonderful kids and wife to the most amazing man in the world!
