Welcome to Neurotalk. Here you will meet some really good people. I am glad to have you.
May I ask who is treating you currently? Most of us have some sort of block done as first defense to this monster. Then other options such as ketamine, tdcs, scs, pain pump, etc.
In the meantime, NO ICE! you can soak in epsom salts and use heat to help relieve flares. I can also say pt can be very helpful. I have found swimming in a heated pool can help relieve some stiffness.
GOD help me be faithful in the midst of my suffering. Alt1268
