I know from Dr Sarno that taking meds are ok once you know its for mild oxygen deprivation from tms and tell yourself so. But I chanced upon an utterly amazing product that is put on the painful area nothing taken or no product applied, no side effect no contraindications anyone can use it. I use oxycontin as well as other drugs so I know good pain control and this is safer and brilliant a life saver when you need it. It is the ActiPatch® is a new and clinically proven drug free technology in the fight against chronic muscle & joint pain. Provides long-lasting and drug-free pain relief with no side-effects. ActiPatch® relieves pain due to muscle and joint soreness, strains and sprains, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and more. Chronic pain results from central sensitization, which causes the nervous system to develop a persistent state of high reactivity. This serves to amplify and maintain the pain even after the initial injury has healed. Therefore, chronic pain is often poorly correlated to the degree of peripheral tissue injury. ActiPatch’s electromagnetic signal pulses 1,000 times per second to stimulate neuromodulation of the afferent nerves to dampen the brains perception of pain. The ActiPatch® pulsed signal rate prevents adaption to allow long-term use. ActiPatch® therapy extended pain relief improves sleep, physical activity and overall quality of life. ActiPatch® relieves chronic and acute pain due to muscle and joint soreness, strains and sprains, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and more. I got a trial and within 10 minutes I felt a difference and I now use them regularly in place of breakthrough drugs. I know I have TMS but the pain is so bad it is hard to work and have a smile on your face the actipatch helps and its only €29.95 approx for 750 hour unit.
