New to hpathy - questionsHi folks,
Let me appoligize in advance as I'm very new to this and have some questions.
First, some background:
My wife has had chronic pain in her joints for about 2 years now. Along with that, she also gets frequent migraines. Even after going to the Mayo Clinic and seeing several pain specialists, no one has come up with a positive diagnosis.
We've ruled out arthritis and it doesnt seem to be a musculoskelital disorder. There's a very slight posibility it may be some sort of cns disorder, based on symptoms, but a nerve conduction study done a year ago didnt reveal anything.
She was diagnosed by a military doctor as having fivromyalgia, but her local pain management specialist doesnt agree.
She's been on TONS of different drug regimens, but none seem to work all that well. The most recent has been 30mg Oxcycodone (1.5-2) 4 times daily. While it provides some relief, she has to come off it soon because we're having a baby in May.
Anyways, that's enough background for now. Please ask if you need more information. Now to my questions:
First, I'm coming from a background of being fairly skeptical about home remidies. I know that there are legitimate uses, but it's hard to tell the good from the bad with everyone trying to sell something. (Please keep in mind, most of what I know about hpathy comes from T.V. infomercials, and I know that most like doesn't scratch the surface of the real thing)
With that in mind, where can I go to find "good" information on how to begin a possible alternative form of pain managment/treatment for my wife? Do we need to see a specialist? Can it be safely done online?
These are our first steps into this realm and I'd like to get something solid to go on. I know nothing is guarenteed, but we're getting desperate at this point. Right now, we're looking at a lifetime of narcotics that barely get my wife to the point where she can perform daily functions without pain.
Any advice or pointers would be greatly appreciated.
Sorry for the long and rambling post.
Thanks in advance,

a - Acupuncture - only use a chinese trained person.
b - hypnotism.
A lot of this work was done in the USA.
Having said that there are many remedies that offer relief from pain . but a detailed analysis of the case is required - on linr is a bit hit or miss. You need a personal reccommend.
