I haven't tried parafin. However I am studying for my Naturapathic Doctor and I've come upon a homeopathy medicines that has helps 3 RSD sufferers. I'll let you know how it works for me. The acupuncture helped some. Make sure you get a good acupuncturist. Also if you can find someone who does energy work that has helped me also. But so far I am not pain free. There had to be something to get this in remission and I'm going to find it. Five and a half years is just too long to live like this.
