Dallas Complex Regional Pain Syndrome Treatment | Patient Testimonials – Erin’s Story
I was diagnosed with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy at the age of 16. Before starting InterX, I was sick for over 8 years due to a previous injury to my left knee. In February of 2012 I began InterX therapy. Since this time, I no longer take Dexilant, Oxycodone, and Tramadol, and have been able to refrain from medication for 4 months. I was also prescribed Baclofen as well with a dosage of four times per week, and since my therapy has begun I am now only taking Baclofen once a week and sometimes less.
Before InterX I would constantly have stomach problems, I would get nauseated and vomit multiple times a day, and was only able to have a bowel movement about once a week. My stomach is now healing with no nausea or sicknesses, and my stomach is finally starting to feel normal.
Before InterX I was only able to sleep about 5 to 6 hours nightly, but would wake multiple times throughout the night. Now with InterX therapy I am sleeping 8 hours per night.
Before InterX the skin on my knee would appear green, purple or black, and also bumpy. Since the continual treatments, the skin changes are starting to lessen and are beginning to look normal, and the bumps have started to disappear. For the first time in over 8 years I am able to touch my knee and also wear pants.
Walking was difficult for me before InterX and I was only able to walk less than a ¼ of a mile. Since treatments began in February I am now able to walk ¾ to 1 mile. I am now able to work, whereas before I was in too much pain to hold a job consistently.
Since February 2012, I feel like I am beginning to regain my life back, and am now able to do things that I thought I would never be able to do again. I want lasting pain relief from my past injury, and I feel that I am gaining this through my treatments I am receiving from InterX Therapy.
