I did and my experience was pure torture. I did tons of research and in theory I thought it was a good idea but that did not prove to be the right thing for me. It also could have been the doctor...he was one of those no pain no gain. Based on my pain during proceres and after I should have ran fast and far. We all know when you are in massive pain you will try anything. I do not know what to tell you other than it was not for me. PM me if you want to talk more. Good luck seriously.

I had a consult with a neurologist that performed prolotherapy. Neurologist was very rude (repeatedly told me I didn’t have TN or migraines), was very rough with me while doing an adjustment and just pushed the shots. He was not open to any other kind of treatment because his was the best. Prolotherapy is not covered by insurance of any kind typically and must be paid for out-of-pocket. I opted not to do it. I am very glad. Instead, I had dry needling performed through physical therapy which was covered by Medicaid. I will never do dry needling again. It caused so much additional pain and I have not really recovered from that yet. Any kind of overstimulation of the muscles if you have fibromyalgia makes things worse.
