yes it is hard to accept that staying calm can have any effect on these monsters but, after having tried most available meds with no success and some really adverse reactions, Mike has had no other choice. Desperation has brought him to this point and he has learned the hard way that if he loses his cool during an attack, that is a SURE FIRE way to bring on a 10.
We have found that when he is on meds, the pain is somewhat reduced but the cycles last longer. Treating and controlling his cycles naturally has definitely been the lesser of two evils FOR US. As we all know, there is no universal control yet that works for everyone but hopefully we are headed in that direction and the good people of OUCH can work together with medical professionals and sufferers to someday find relief.
