Visualization or self hypnosis?

Has anyone tried some sort of guided visualization or hypnosis? As I sit here knowing that my feet are really not on fire more do they have needles being inserted in them hourly, yet I feel it, I wonder. I know the issue is in my brain or brain stem, yet I feel it in the feet. So it seems I should be able to convince myself that it’s not real. Am I crazy?

@rivka , MS is enough to drive anyone crazy! But, we have to indulge ourselves and try these things. We’re all different so it might just work. You won’t know until you try………

Thanks, @stumbler, I knew I could count on you! It’s easy to live inside our heads too much trying to reason out this irrational disease. I’ll post if it helps at all.

I posted recently about reiki, which I found eliminated sensory symptoms for me on one occasion. It shouldn’t have! There is no logical reason, as far as I can judge. One person standing over you,waving their hands over your body…… ?? My theory is that the brain can be persuaded or re-directed from its faulty signalling if the stimulus is strong enough. Hence, a massage might ease symptoms, or equally a really enjoyable social experience or an academically stimulating task. If you can distance/detach yourself from your thoughts sufficiently, it might just work. Keep us posted. xK
