    The worse hell I ever experienced was when I slowly weaned myself off the Lyrica, since it wasn't doing anything except making all my joints hurt and swell. I couldn't even get my rings off!

    I had rf nerve ablation done (not sure what lesioning is) It made everything worse. It was extremely painful. I would have another nerve block before I would go through that again! Best of luck!

    vomit from pain

    Before I had my stimulator put in I basically gave up and was ready to check out. I started vomiting because my body was breaking down due to so much pain. It is usually a wake up call.
