Hi, I am Jennie and I live in Ontario, Canada. My story-lumpectomy 8 years. Then I had Chemo (5fu), 25 regular radiations and 5 to lumpectomy scar. 2 years later pain began in finger tips and moved to whole hand, up arm, down shoulder blade. My fingers are paralyzed now.
My pain treatment is-Lyrica 4xday, Effexor 3xday
My pain levels are bearable if I 1-restrict my movement ,2-keep my mind busy....I use iPad to distract with research, word games, Netflix, etc.. 3-control temperature of my skin.
Either my pain has gotten worse or the dosage of medication isn't working quite like it use to. I am maxed out on my present meds.
Has anyone explored HBOT treatments? Are there others with a similar condition who have tried other pain treatments? I would really like to hear your story. And feel free to ask me any questions. Jennie
