Hello

I would not suggest that, and that procedure is rarely indicated, and hard to find, as it is a newer treatment.

It is apparently effective.

How long have you had this?

what city and state are you in?

Have you asked your pain doctor? it is their job to know if, and where, this might be available.

I've had this eight years a result of shingles. My home is in Cambria Ca.

I have a lot of pain.I can only wear clothes made with polyester or silk and no texture. Ive had some relief from lyrica but the pain has gotten progressively worse. I can"t engage in much activity because the pain wears me out.
