I am an evidence based, science oriented gal, but my pain was getting unbearable and I don’t like how all the pain meds made me feel. Ok, I’m also not a big pill popper. So I finally gave medical hypnosis a try. After several weeks, I’m a believer. It’s helping a lot. Yes, I still have pain, plenty of it. But I feel that I’m coping so much better with it. I can see it for what it is, and not get wrapped up in worrying about how much worse it’s going to get. I flunked out with brief trials of gabapentin, celexa, and sativex. I hated how they made me feel. I should add I also utilize massage and acupuncture somewhat successfully. So, a vote for trying new things like medical hypnosis here!
