I was reading the "living with rsd" facebook page and noticed a "Marcie Dillard" had multiple posts about her pain and calmare treatment.
It would appear that the protocol has been significantly modified -- at least by Dr. D'Amato, a "certified" provider of the therapy.
"Second day. No pain meds since 5:30 am. pain was maybe a four at 2:30 they hooked me up and Dr. D['Amato] turned on some beautiful music lite candles warmed a blanket covered me up and turned the lights down. A loving environment new for me since I got this wretched disease. I walked out a zero."
I don't recall music, candlelight, and warm blankets as being part of the protocol.
Well, maybe they can get insurance to reimburse at least for heating the blankets.
Speaking of insurance, it was rather humorous that although Dr. Cooney lists himself as a Marcie facebook "friend," he never responded to the plea she included in one post:
"Dr Cooney what can I do to help insurance to pay for all of this. it has to happen so tell me what I can do."
