I see this is an older post. Did you get the spinal stimulator?
My best information after diagnosis has come from pain expert Dr Forest Tennant. There is a website for patients to educate themselves as a free public service.
I do anything with consideration of my long term GP & other chosen health care people. Having the information from these sources has helped me be a survivor in my life with arachnoiditis.
Michael I hope you are doing ok on your journey with it. It is not easy going and is unpredictable, like lots of pain stuff people on here are living through. If anyone knows of a specialist doctor in Australia I would still be interested to hear of it.
Hello if your still out there living with this or anyone that have had any success with SCS
