Just to say as a little reminder–Abdominal cutaneous nerve entrapment syndrome is NOT a digestive ailment

Oct 31, 2019 · Has anyone been diagnosed with Abdominal Wall Pain in Chronic Pain

With all the reading and research I've done, it's clear to me that medical care in the U.S. is useless in treating chronic pain. (How do we even find each other here, since we're posting under "DIGESTIVE HEALTH"?!) I've had 12 physicians and 2 P.A.s near home brusoff presumably because all scans, tests, etc. were negative. MDs won't believe the pain, so we're labeled as drug seekers! Outside the U.S., there are a number of documented successful treatments (all of which we've been denied in the U.S.) Here all they do is hand me a prescription..24 in 2 years…none for neuropathy. I had to diagnose abdominal wall pain myself (later substantiated by University of Washington pain physicians BTW) but I'm still a patient to be ignored, with 5 more MDs who brushed me off. Why do we have to visualize suicide as the only possible way out?

RBassett, Many doctors also implied that my condition was psychosomatic because they missed the ACNES diagnosis. It took a year and a half before ACNES was confirmed. I hope that you are truly convinced that it's psychosomatic and that hypnotherapy is available to you and that it helps. Take care of yourself OK?

Hi Sandyg, so glad for you! Hope it continues to work for a long time for you!

Hi RBassett, I get my tincture from a local store, where they are great at working with people like me trying different formulations. I don't like hemp oil, for example, and started the tincture at 250 CBD and 150 THC which didn't make much difference. Have worked up to 1000 CBD and 50 THC, called "CHILL" and I take it at bedtime. It helps, but it's not magic…wish it were.

@elle1233 Dunno who your message was aimed at. ACNES is NOT GI, it's neuropathy , and it IS relieved by numbing one small area. I've had weekly sessions with a PT who is a PhD pain therapist & exercise on treadmill and weights. So far the only help has been 1. Distraction and 2. pain meds. Has anyone else on this thread had any luck at all with PT for ACNES?

Rufus444, I've had 5 steroid/lidocane or marcaine or buvipacaine injections and they were only temporary at best. Glad you're out there though. Somehow it helps to know there are other patients with the same diagnosis and suffering and maybe there will be something out there that clicks for us? Any European treatments or research? Obviously the Mayo clinic has no help to offer–

Hi Baz10, I didn't have any luck with alternative med…acupuncture, homeopathy or microbiome supplements. It's not any gastric or digestive problem in any way, it's neuropathy and I haven't heard of any magic for that….
