Cryotherapy

Cryotherapy

Has anyone ever heard of or tried cryotherapy to treat their fibro? My husbands friend swears by it. It's supposed to eliminate inflammation. It seems there is a new fad popping up all the time spouting a cure for just about everything. I know that inflammation is the underlying root of so many medical issues. So maybe? What have you heard?

I had cryotherapy on my foot to try and treat a verruca. I visited the doctors the day after having it as i thought it was infected, told no it wasn't, that night got no sleep what so ever, the pain was awful and I ended up going to a and e at 6am, by 7am I'd lost the feeling in my foot and couldn't move my toes. I wasn't told how bad it could be and have bad the side effect were. I'm still having trouble with the foot now and have been since i had it done in feb 2016 and waiting for a hospital appointment to hopefully see if they can fix the mess. PLEASE make sure you ask lots of questions before going though with it.
