Has anyone ever tried the hyperbaric oxygen treatments?

Just wondering if anyone has ever tried this??? It's pretty expensive, I think, and insurance won't always cover it. I've heard it works for pain, headaches, and sometimes ms. ?????

I sure hope someone has done this. I am very interested to hear about it. I will ask my neuro next visit what his thoughts are on it as well.

Re: Has anyone ever tried the hyperbaric oxygen treatments?

Both my Neurologist and family physician have indicated hyperbaric oxygen treatment should ease symptons but not be a cure for MS. Has anyone with MS actually tried it?

Re: Has anyone ever tried the hyperbaric oxygen treatments?

All of my doctors have told me it WONT work and if there was a cure, or even help, then 400,000 people in the United States alone would be suffering wtih incurable pain...

Ive read everything I can get my hands on on this, and come to the conclusion that its not for me. I am a huge beliver in trying new things, but this is just alittle too expensive and too many people are saying "hoaky" for my bank account..

Love to hear if anyone has tried it.

Re: Has anyone ever tried the hyperbaric oxygen treatments?

never herd of that one but I would suspect that it is like every thing else a lot of talk on benefits but results not so good I've read all kind of stuff on different therapies seavege,bee stings, goats blood but we just have to accept that there is no cure and we just do the best we can. Maybe your Dr. can give you something to help with pain. I would try anything if it would be a help. Having MS bites but is just the way life said Hay. I guess we are lucky there are things that are worse. I with you on that pain some days it starts at my neck and goes to my feet. It is a shame that I have to take all those drugs just to sleep through the pain. Hope you find some relief soon
