I have two M1s that I have been using around the clock to treat extensive nerve damage. This year has been unusually rough for me, and while I have developed a high tolerance for pain, this has got to be the most intense. I just sent one M1 back to you @Bob for repairs, so it’s going to be an even rougher two weeks as I wait for it to get it back, but as I’m waiting, I’d like to ask a couple of questions:
- With the cooler temperatures, my pain ramps up even more and I wear much bulkier sweaters to keep my circulation going. I’m wondering, should I increase the intensity of the M1 to compensate for the bulky clothing? I’m currently applying an intensity of 10 to the stacked coils applied on my spine and alternating on two areas of my hip joints where the pain is most intense. While the one on the spine does seem to help tremendously with the nerve pain on all 4 limbs, especially the fingers, the two areas on my hip seem to not see much benefit. I have had to keep my weight off the right hip, because it has been excruciatingly painful especially when I walk or lie down to sleep. Should I be applying a stronger intensity? Or instead of stacked coils, place the coils in opposite-side configuration? I cannot, for the life of me understand why the M1 does not seem to be working for the hip pain.
X-rays ruled out arthritis, so my physician thinks the nerve damage has gotten worse. The hip areas affected: bilateral sacroiliac joint and ilioinguinal nerve that runs from hip to groin.
- I have been keeping up with the news on the forum @Bob, of a PEMF mat in the works. Any idea of how long before you see fruition? As with many of us, it cannot be soon enough!
I have not been taking any analgesics as those do not seem to give me any relief and I am reluctant to rely on prescriptive drugs. Instead, I do a lot of heat therapy and exercise (two hours a day) to get the circulation going, drink very concentrated ginger water to reduce inflammation and practice meditation to help control the pain. Any other suggestion for treating the pain would be very much appreciated.
