@lynnryan Hello there fellow PRC'er. Congratulations on graduating the pain rehab program! It sure was enlightening and changed my life in many ways beyond just pain management that I never anticipated. I'm happy to know you feel the same.

Yes, I have had light sensitivity since before I had cornea transplants and cataracts surgeries, about 11 years now. After the surgeries it intensified which I now understand was an upregulation of central sensitization syndrome (CSS). I passed on the eye exercises when they were offered to help with my secondary cataract. Instead I had YAG laser done and it helped. My sensitivity remains from central sensitization but now I use my PRC (pain rehab center) tools to help control and work with it. The 20/20/20 rule helps and graded exposure is important.

It sounds like you know the tools to help with your dizziness and eyes, and are doing the best you can. Me too. What were your biggest takeaways from attending PRC? In what ways has your quality of life improved?

Glad to connect with a fellow graduate! I had a lot of great takeaway’s. Some of the biggest were just understanding CSS, and the importance of staying in good physical health and moderation. I would say I handle stress better, and my depression has decreased. Still working my first 2 week plan, but really feel the tools will give me a better quality of life. Definitely life changing.

What are you or were you doing to help out with your CSS issues?
