  • Intense discomfort after DSMO

    I just read some of the posts below and am frustrated that my doc did not know a lot of the information stated. I just had my first DSMO after 10 years of not getting them. I had a gut feeling it would be a bad idea, but I tried it because I have become way to dependent on AZO, Anyway, I remember that I had discomfort before, but I was able to get a treatment and go to work. There is no way I could have gone to work after this one. I don't think any lidocaine was used and I feel intense burning and urgency. I'm hoping to get some sleep so I can go to work tomorrow, but unless I get some relief it won't happen. I have taken AZO again, have had a warm bath and am using lavender oil on my belly. Is there anything else I can do to move on from this intense discomfort?

    DMSO isn't used as often as it was in the past. If you have another DMSO treatment, I suggest you ask to have lidocaine or Marcaine instilled first --- then wait a few minutes before the DMSO is instilled --- you'll also want to be sure the DMSO is no more than 25% of the solution.

    Stay safe
