Treatments so far...: Other than symptom management, the only real treatments available for fabry disease are enzyme replacement with agalsidase Alpha (replagal) and Agalsidase Beta (fabrazyme). These require regular infusions, and do not always lead to improvement, but do reliably halt disease progression.

Plus-minus: Fabry's, a genetic disease, is often brutal when it produces pain (especially burning palms) and interferes with the function of several organ systems. Agalsidase (replagal, fabryzyme), the replacement enzyme, is now available though hugely expensive; it reportedly helps with pain though analgesics / pain management also help. Good luck.
