Hope you're all coping with your symptoms and not suffering too much. I haven't posted on here for a long while but felt someone may be able to help.
I was diagnosed with LS about 4 years ago (think I've had it mildly for longer than 4 years). I currently use steroid cream as and when needed (feels like it's needed more and more), and I have read many self help stories of emu oil, coconut oil and bicarbonate of soda baths none of which have really worked for me. I therefore have two questions to ask.
Before I was diagnosed with LS I was taking 20mg of fluoxetine daily, which I had been taking for 6-8 years. I decided I no longer needed to take it, so went ahead and weaned myself off (under my GPS advise and instructions). Unfortunately once I came off fluoxetine my LS flared up and the diagnosis was made (could be completely co-incidentle - I don't know). So I wondered is there anyone on here who takes anti-depresents purely to help with their LS.
Also, I am due to start stem cell treatment in October at the Royal Free Hospital, and I was wondering if anyone has experienced this treatment and can offer any info, e.g.. was if effective, if so how long was it effective for, is/was it very painful, how many session did you have etc.
I hope it's ok to pose these questions, and any info would be gratefully appreciated.
