Hypnotherapy and alternative therapies

Posted , 7 users are following.

After an absolutely horrendous night and an equally bad day I am contemplating hypnotherapy to help ease the pain. Anyone any thoughts on this or other alternative therapies.  The drugs I have tried to date have made matter worse.     Think I have got to the stage where  I will try almost anything that's legal!!

    Hi Maggers

    I to have thought about hypnotherapy but very sceptical about it. I have not known anyone I personally know that has tried hypnotherapy for anything.

    It will be interesting to see what responses come on this forum?

    I too am at a stage where I will give things a try after 20yrs of pains.  

    Live for the moment and a day at a time.  Every new day is an interesting learning kerb.

      Tried to reply but the response disappeared so will try again.Forgive me if it is repeated.   I have bitten the bullet and emailed a hypnotherapist who seems to have experience with fibro.  Will let you know how I get on if I get a response to the email.  Desperate times call for desperate measures. I am not asking for miracles I just want to be able to control  the pain to a reasonable level.   Not much to ask for really is it or is it pie in the sky?

      I totally agree with you.  I just would like to be pain free and have a good night sleep. Definitely let me know how you get on with it.

      A friend did mention if I had tried hynotherapy but told him I have considered it but too afraid to give it a go as sceptical about it all.

      Do keep me posted with your findings. 

      Thanks wink x

    Hi Maggers.wish I had an answer for every one, and my self! Definitely try it, what have you to loose. I think each poster on here is like a little family in a way.we don't know each other but do understand more than those whose life is not effected by Fibro and we all have good and warm thoughts for each other.

    i , like others have mention, have M.E, for many many yeRs but only recently diagnosed with Fibro, mainly because not listened to, what a surprise!. Only med tried so far was a prescribed anti histomenne which dud nithing fir pain but made me feel doped up and even worse attempts at sleep. Felt drugged and semi under but still awake. Binned them after five days but effect lasted a couple more.was worth the try though and see what doc comes up with next.

    let us know how you get on..just do it in your stride .thinking if you.

      MCTIMONEY  works by ajusting the whole body and finishes with an all over massage ,i had a life when i was being treated ,started of twice weekly and got down to once every 3 months , i walked better slept better had less balance issues and less stomach issues .

      stands to reason if everything is aligned it will work better . 

      iv tried several chiropracters they tend to ajust one or two points and iv never found them to be very helpful in fact two of them hurt me very badly by by pushing down between my shoulders with out using the release mechanisum so the tabledid drop down i was in pain for weeks after treatments and hesitate to go back to one that isent a MC timoney 

      reflexolgy much better for me than accupunture which i am having now 

      my relexology lady retired and know one replaced her

    Many thanks everyone. Got an email back from the therapist - ring to discuss further to see whether we can take it further (no charge for initial consult) so will definitely ring and find out.  Another night and sleep has not been possible so I am willing to try anything.

      Trouble is life gets expensive when we are seeking help - even if it is just parking the car at the hospital!  I have spent a fortune but it seems I have found someone who actually wants to make sure they can help before charging me anything - now that is a rare find.

    Hi, all alternative therapies are valid. Have your read my post and dicussion on LDN? Have look and make some search online. If you're desperate it may be good for you to try it. Take care.
