In a couple weeks I start a 12 week course in comprehensive pain treatment, which aims to help lessen pain, and help you cope with it. There's group counseling, reiki, yoga, meditation, hypnosis, a nutritionist, PT, OT, EMDR, cooking class, sleep well program. Unfortunately, my insurance doesn't cover the acupuncture or massage they also offer. The program is very much about mindfulness. Fingers crossed it helps. Has anyone else gone through a similar program?

      EMDR from local hospital outpatient worked to get my migraines down. After surgery, they spiked and imitrex still worked but they came back 3 times each day. This set them back to just the once a day.

      I have. The pain Rehabilitation program through Mayo Clinic. It is helpful in learning naturalistic ways of living with your pain. I went in 2019 for a 3 week course. It was awesome during but after I put a lot of pressure on myself to try and keep up all the things. It was unrealistic. I use a lot of the tools they taught me. It is not a cure all, but it definitely brought my health from a very bad place to one that 4 years later is more fulfilling. It really helped me to find other people who were living with the same conditions. Listening to their testimonies. Hearing their lives and thoughts mirroring mine so closely when I had felt so alone.

      I haven’t heard of a program like this. I hope it’s successful for you.

      Not that intensive but I wish. It would help a lot to not just be doing some here and there like I usually do but to do all in a rigorous program would be very helpful. Especially because they can deal with everything.

        @Kingswife I've had fibromyalgia and connective tissue disease for over 22 years and none of my insurance companies have paid for something like that. My one in Lansing, MI paid for water therapy and that was the best therapy I have had. It was soothing.
