Good morning *warm huggs* I hope the weather where you are is more tolerable today. It is down right chilly here!! And the heating / air conditioning fellow called to say he had some family problems, wouldnt be able to come til tuesday. Good thing I have a plethra of fuzzy socks
My facets are having issues to say the least ... The doctors call it "levoscoliosis". A "structural problem" they say. It keeps getting worse and worse and going at an extremely rapid rate. So, I have alot of my spine injected every three to four months ( I try to wait as long as possible because with more injections = more cost. last time was 5,000). The only problem with having so much done is that they treat me like a fragile egg and are always worried of "risk of infection". So, I am closly monitored / check-up for first month and a half after each "series of injections". After the injections, when I have a "flare" all I feel is stiffness, a "pushing out" sensation and muscles "sticking".
For the joint flares (through out my body) I take a medicine called Nabumetone (sometimes folks call it "relofen") it keeps me functioning, but it is in the "NSAID" family tree. So, no so sure that would be of help to you.
I had a friend that took an antidepressant and it effected her "bed life" too, but she told her doctor about it and he switched her to something new. That one was better, but not quite enough, but!! On the thrid try, they got one that worked and it was perfect for her & her husband to *wink*.
I know nothing of "RF Burns" or "Nerve abalation". I mean, I know of the procedure, but not first hand knowladge. As I am "not a candidate" for it. But oh my gosh I wish I were! I met so many folks in the waiting rooms that say it is fantastic and one man had relief for 8 months!! I met one lady who had been in a accident had "trauma" in her shoulder, she was 9months out from her RF burns and still no pain. Gosh, I wish I could get it done!
So, that is really all I know about those types of pain relief. Not so much really. I am sorry I cannot be of more help to you. But, it was very nice to catch up with you. I hope you have a nice day today.
