Hi all, I'll introduce myself. I'm a 25 year old male and I found this forum after a lot of searching the internet for possible answers regarding chronic pain. It's not about me however, it's about my girlfriend (24 years old) who had a lumbar puncture done about 10 months ago. After the procedure she has had terrible back pain which just wont go away. Every day now she tries to manage her life, but she feels pain pretty much constantly and it is difficult for her to stand up or sit down for too long. As you all probably know, chronic pain can really drain someones willpower and joy and I can't accept the fact that she has to live with this forever. The reason I'm posting here is to ask the TMS community if you think it is possible that approaching the issue in the "TMS way" could be beneficial for her? What I really want is to hear similar stories, hopefully from people who got better eventually. Does anyone know of any cases where chronic pain started after some sort of back surgery, and then was successfully treated using the TMS method? She has had numerous physical exams and an MRI, and the doctors are not very clear on what the issue is. They have pretty much been useless. The only thing that relieved the pain was when she went to a chiropractor who cracked her back, but that was very temporary. Basically, I'm desperate here. I just want her to get well so she can live normally again. If anyone has any advice or insight I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you stranger for reading.
