Dealing with Pain from AVM
Hi, I was hoping that someone had some info that would help my daughter deal with the pain that she is having from the AVM that is in her forearm and hand. (Bone and muscle) She always has some pain, but sometimes, it becomes overwhelming for her. What can we do to help the pain, preferably no medication, and why all of a sudden does it hurt so intensely?
I know that triggers of growth can be hormonal change, stress, and I have recently heard illness. Do pain and growth go together? She has had a hard couple of days. We know from a recent MRI, that it is on the "warpath" again and we are in the process of getting her medical info to Dr. Burrows, but in the meantime, I thought that there might be something that we could do to help her along with the pain.
Thanks for your help. Sarah
