[QUOTE=Bratette19;5243918]A lady who sees the same doctor I see has been in remission for 6 years. She had a mild case, but she has not even turned here SCS on except every couple months to check the battery.

Myself it feels hopeless. I spend many hours in tears! I would be happy for temporary remission long enough that I could sleep of a night.[/QUOTE]

Have you had multiple nerve block or an extended nerve block treatment?

For me it took 3 seperate lumbar nerve blocks over about a 3 month period to push it into remission. It went away first and second time for a few weeks, then gradually came back. The doctor was going to conduct an overnight, 24 hour nerve block treatment if it came back after the third treatment and was confident it could be overcome.

It has not come back for 2 years since it first surfaced though recently it felt like it was threatening to come back and I had to take a physical break for a few days.

Don't give up hope. The cause is a mystery but treatments are available and work for some of us, probably for you too I hope.

Yes I have had 5 nerve blocks they stop my pain for a very short time. The doctor who put in my spinal cord stimulator talked about how I was the perfect candidate and he was 99% sure that with SCS I would go into remission, boy was he wrong. I just have new issues. Don't get me wrong I can tell a difference I went from like an 8 on pain scale to 6 but I am still unable to walk. Am still stuck in my recliner most of the time. If I am up on my feet. I am in major pain after 20 minutes,
