Has anyone heard of this, or had experiences with it themselves? I have run out of options (I'm not willing to take unapproved medications for what I have meant for other diseases) so am considering turning to this. A year or so ago my neurologist mentioned and described it to me, but I refused to even listen to her about it since it involves a(few?) hospital stay(s). If no one has gone through it can you do some research to help me? I am sixteen and I should be good with the Internet but I kind of suck when it comes to researching things. Websites won't help, but if you could explain it to me...what they do to you w hen you receive it, side effects of getting the treatment, benefits, and any personal experiences would be of great help to me. I have tried Neurontin (which many of you seem to be on, made me really fucked up in the head) and then Amitriptyline hcl which helped for a few weeks while I was on the maximum dosage I could take. Now I am desperate from the pain I suffer from. It is taking all happiness from my life, at a time that is supposed to be my best years...I'm only 16. My depression is about a 15 on a scale of 1-10 from the pain, and I can't go on living like this. Please help me.
