I've had small fiber neuropathy and/or fms for 15 years with no relief.  Is pulse stimulation treatment (pstim)  a viable treatment?  It's costly..

These may cause injury to the small fiber nerves.

Pancreatic cancer treatment and thinner for dvt. Now cough with bloody phlegm. Oncologist is aware, but didn't alter treatment. Is this an emergency?
