Re: PARALYZED LUNG - PHRENIC NERVE REPAIR TO DIAPHRAGM

Everything in the body is a web. There are many "connected" parts making the whole you. If the diaphragm is paralyzed (or a portion from one side - right or left) there are several corresponding consequences that will not be addressed by the majority of physicians or specialists. In fact I've seen m...

PARALYZED LUNG - PHRENIC NERVE REPAIR TO DIAPHRAGM

Re: 4‐Aminopyridine promotes functional recovery and remyelination in acute peripheral nerve injury

Igonda, Thanks for the kind words of appreciation. The science is there, it'll be just a matter of time before it all comes together. Wise move being cautious with medications, as I've experienced the same "half-awake", which was worse in the end than the pain (if that is possible!). All the best, C...

Smartphone study on weather and pain reveals early data

Great idea!
Got to get these folks to extend this study to the USA (it's for the UK only right now).

Biomedicine: Move over, morphine

this sounds better than the average SCS, as I've read multiple cases of electrode implants moving after surgery debilitating the SCS's function.

Efficacy of cranial electrotherapy stimulation for neuropathic pain following spinal cord injury: a multi-site randomize

I'm currently researching Spinal Cord Stimulators (SCS) and Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulators (CES). SCS's are more invasive as they require an implanted electrodes into the spinal cord, and the device itself is implanted beneath the skin. Here's one company's CES I'm looking into: http://www.fishe...
