Hi to All,

It's been many years since I've posted on Lymenet but I have some information that might help others.

My daughter is now 29 but has suffered with Lyme and co-infections since she was 12.

She has had many horrible symptoms but her worst was the 7 years of continuous unilateral (left side only) head pressure that never went away.

It got so bad that she had to quit school, quit work, and quit driving a car.

It would vary in pain strength but never go away.

Over the last few years she has attacked the head pressure problem in 2 different ways.

Both of these procedures were done at a pain clinic in Massachusetts.

First Option - she got Lidocaine infusions once a month which helped to reduce the head pressure but never completely eliminated it.

It did reduce it considerably though which gave her better quality of life.

She did this for about six months until she was offered the second option.

Second Option - this one took her head pressure headache away completely.

She had "Pulsed Radio Frequency Ablation" done to the C2 cervical nerve.

From what was told to me this targeted the Occipital nerve.

It took about a week before she could definitely tell that the procedure had worked.

For the first time in 7 years she was headache free.

She always described her headache as though an elephant was stepping on the left side of her head.

She never described it as a migraine or just a regular headache, it was always associated with lots of "pressure".

Take Care, Paul.

Aleluya! How wonderful this is for her.

So good to hear from you too, and I thank you for sharing this news in the hopes that it will help others.

I am not familiar with the procedure, but will check it out.

Good luck to you both!

Thank you for the update Paul. I hope she gets lasting improvement from the RF. I did consider this in the past. The nerves do eventually grow back though.

If her headaches do return, you might consider Atlas Orthognal treatment if you haven't already. It worked wonders for me.

My PE1 (infrared device) emits also Radio Frequencies, according to the maker.

He uses those RF on purpose, he said, for therapeutic use.

Good to know it helped her!


Do you know that radio transmitters and receivers were first invented by Tesla (not Marconi)?

My violet ray, that I swear, helps me tons, also then emits radio frequencies.

All devices using Tesla coils will emit quite some range of Radio frequencies:

- plasma rife, PEMFs, violet ray, tesla lights, photon genie, Lakhovsky MWO, etc)

All of them have therapeutic effects.

-------------------------------

Wikipedia:

Tesla coil circuits were used commercially in spark-gap radio transmitters for wireless telegraphy until the 1920s, ...

.... and in medical equipment such as electrotherapy and violet ray devices.


A Tesla coil is a RADIO frequency oscillator that drives an air-core double-tuned resonant transformer to produce high voltages at low currents.

...

The alternating current output is in the low radio frequency range, usually between 50 kHz and 1 MHz.


Although some oscillator-driven coils generate a continuous alternating current, most Tesla coils have a pulsed output;...

... the high voltage consists of a rapid string of pulses of RADIO frequency alternating current.

......

The current flows rapidly back and forth between the plates of the capacitor through the coil, generating RADIO frequency oscillating current in the primary circuit at the circuit's resonant frequency.


The resonant frequency of Tesla coils is in the low radio frequency (RF) range, usually between 50 kHz and 1 MHz.


However, because of the impulsive nature of the spark they produce BROADBAND RADIO NOISE, and without shielding can be a significant source of RFI, interfering with nearby radio and television reception.

I have a very similar story.

29 male from massachusetts with severe head pressure.
No supplement/medicine has helped relieve it for the past decade.

Im very interested in finding a pain clinic in massachusetts that will know wat to look for. Does anyone have any recommendations.

Thanks
