I am a 48 year old female who has suffered with chronic pain for over 20 years. After two automobile accidents in the late 80’s, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and later with undifferentiated autoimmune disease and sjogrens syndrome. There is inflammation throughout my body with lots of clicking at my joints. I see a neuromuscular therapist, chiropractor, and lymphatic specialist weekly. These therapy sessions help me tolerate the pain. Muscle cramps were manageable by day, but hard to control at night. Doctors prescribed Xanax, then Ambien, and finally Plaquenil Sulfate (an arthritis medicine) allowing me to sleep.
On Thursday, October 29, 2009, I had my first therapy session with Sky-David’s new Lumina Nocturna along with a lymphatic drainage session with Veronica MacKay. That night I slept more solidly than I could recollect with several memorable dreams throughout the night. I woke refreshed.
I do not believe that I even recognized how much pain I was in until after I tried the Lumina Nocturna. I am now without body aches and constant muscle spasms. This week I began working out – something that I haven’t done in many years. It is hard to put into words how great I feel! It is as though I am on a low dose of Flexeril, but slightly different. Better! I cannot honestly remember feeling this good. I feel like I am in an altered state of consciousness all the time.
Having just purchased the Lumina Nocturna for my home use, I intend on using this every other night for one hour before bedtime. I have stopped taking Neurontin altogether, and will be speaking with my Rheumatologist about discontinuing both the Plaquenil and Evoxac.
Thank you, Sky David, for this great instrument.
