I agree that there are alot of treatments that DON'T work out there. However, coming from the Alternative world there are alot of treatments that sound far out that actually do work. They may not relieve the pain completely, but they may make it more bearable. Most of us are permanently stuck in our situations, but hope should never be lost!
Suzane, everyone cares and I think that all the posts show you that! The only person who has to believe in the choice you made to pursue this is you! I, myself have done many many treatments that people thought to be hocus....some were, but most helped. Whether it was to lower my stress level, cut some of the spasm or help me sleep better, they did do something. Make a list of all your symptoms before you go, physical and mental....60-120 days from now (after the treatments) pull the list and see how many things have changed. It take 90-120 days for the cellular changes to occur. I have found this to be a valid way to chart progress from any treatment I have tried. If at the end of that time, nothing has changed then you will know for sure if it was worth the try.
Good luck and I am praying for a positive outcome from this treatment.
