Sixty Finished

I have completed the sixty treatments that I signed up for. People are asking me if I'm better and the truth is that I'm not sure. I still need pain medicine every single day, and I'm still tired out by minimal activity. Pressure points still hurt. My thinking seems clearer, and I think my sleep is deeper.

On the other hand, for the first time in memory, I had a nightmare last week. I don't remember the content, but I woke up Yaakov and grabbed him. (He says. I remember nothing.)
I've also had some small muscle tremors lately, but I have no idea what caused them. They seem to be related to extreme exhaustion (which is my default state).

I will have an MRI in around two weeks. After that, I will meet with Doctor Efrati to determine what happens next. 

I think that there's a possibility that 1. things will continue to improve. 2. there has been some underlying improvement, but 14 years of clenched muscles, poor sleep, low exercise, etc have taken their toll and I may need some rehab. 

In any case, I'm not done with hope. Keep reading!


  1. Is someone writing a paper about this? It will be interesting to see the full results and also if things iprove over the next few month which they well might.

  2. Hi Leah,
    Thanks so much for sharing your journey with the hyperbaric chambers.
    Please keep us informed what your doctor said the next step is. A lot of us have our hopes on the hyperbaric chamber as a cure for fibromyalgia, or that at least as a huge improvement to the symptoms.
    I'm really glad to hear that it helped you with your sleeping and with the fibro fog. Do you continue to see an improvement in those areas or were they a temporary improvement?
    Again, really appreciate your sharing your journey with us and waiting to hear more.
