It is known that anxiety will increase nerve pain, and
thus it is not surprising that hypnosis or mind control can be used
effectively in some cases. I personally have found it very effective
for immediate control of my nerve pain and the secondary anxiety that it
generates when severe. Some practioners relate that if used daily
for a 20 or 30 minute period, some patients get relief from the nerve pain
that lasts longer than the immediate session.
I have not found that to be the case, but my job
activities are not conducive to allowing me to escape for a full 30
minutes of quite time needed to accomplish this task.
When the pain is severe, I have used relaxation
techniques/hypnosis, or what ever you want to call it, to gain some
control over my pain and/or reaction to it. Unfortunately my
productivity during this period is zero, limiting it as a complete
solution, at least in my case.
Please post your experiences on the message board, and I
will incorporate them on this page (anonymously), as time allows.
