Thread: Electric Shocks

  1. #31
    I just talked to my phycologist. He said for me sleep and depression should be the first things I cure and maybe the pain later.
    Also my anxiety because of this pain.
    He makes more sense then pain specialist.
    Doctors all seem to have little empires that you have to fight past all the time.
    Thank somebody for the ones you can get through too

    You can buy Melatonin at your local drug or health store ... I started off taking 3mg ... on hard nights I would take two. Two months ago, I bought the wrong dosage at 10mg! Works like a charm. Or cough syrup ... a little trick left over from my shift work days. I used to get Imovane from my doc, but long term it can cause memory loss so my doc took me off of it. It was a God-send for shift work! Like turning off yourself! I agree that adequate sleep is so important but I wish there were sleep studies for paralysis ... I bet it would find we don't get adequate REM cycle sleep so it's never restful and we never wake up refreshed.

    That's great point about SCI patients and sleep. If everyone slept well body would be restful and maybe recover more. I was on sleeping pills and I felt tired during the day and exhausted at night.

    Sleep should be #1 health # 2 and pain #3 Pain ends up being #1 all most of the time.

    The shocks came back with a vengeance. I have not had one day without them and sometimes it's related to posture while other times it's related to an infection.

    Does David Berg still post on this forum?

    there is a pattern to it and you will get used to it. Living with it is the chore. I don't think there is a cure yet. hopefully some of this technology that we use on phones and computers can rewire this spinal cord injury stuff. I think that may be the future. Mechanical or electricity issue. Not meds. Not doctors not psychologist's Technology will be the answer. It is changing as I type this. That is what I hope for anyways.
    My nephew and lots of younger people will integrate all this into the life of SCI patients. And we shouldn't have to wait for clinical trials etc as it will be modern medicine. Not pills and chemicals or even therapies I hope.
    Stay involved and we all learn.

    Yes, I believe in that technology will be such a huge part of it. However, clinical trials take too long in our system and some companies can not afford it and then they quit (Stem Cells Inc.) Whatever technology comes it has to effective right away and then it can be built on it. Surgical and non-surgical simulation is based on technology and I have high hopes in them. These things can be built upon and some genius might come up with a totally different way to use it to fix SCI or other illnesses.

    I've seen those referred to as lightning pains or lancinating pains and more than once I've heard them described as the most challenging pains that people have to deal with. Neuropathic pain, especially central pain, can be nearly impossible to treat effectively. Given that this type of pain can come up sporadically and randomly, it is all that much more difficult to find some type of workable solution.
