    I have no idea what an infartion is, but I'm also a T-10 that has to deal with immense amounts of pain. If the pain is horrible, you should look in to seeing a pain specialist.

    Infarction is a loss of blood supply to a body area, so this is like a spinal cord stroke.

    Where did you go to rehab? Do you have a good SCI physiatrist? Have you tried TENS? Acupuncture? Other drugs (mexilitine, Tegretol, Lyrica, imipramine)??

    Damagedgoods, you're worrying me tonight. You seem to be having a meltdown of sorts and I'm concerned for you.

    What's happened for you to write the things you are tonight? What has precipitated such lashing at others?

    I know SCI sucks, more some days than other, but what has happened for you to write what you're writing, for you to do this at this moment?

    Talk to us. We are here for each other and that includes you.

    Whatever has happened, hang in. What's happening, dg?
