    Default Documenting PRP and propranol journey.

    I will be starting propranol and getting my second PRP session next weekend.

    My first PRP did nothing.

    Good luck. I have taken Propranolol for approximately 7 years and it has massively improved my flushing caused by emotional stress.

    But not heat? That's my trigger

    It has improved my heat sensitivity, although following the guidance provided in the below report was more beneficial:

    I unfortunately still struggle with the burning sensation.

    How are the PRP treatments going? Any improvement or additional treatments since your first?

    Immediately after prp for about a week my skin improves a lot. Then it goes back to being a red burning mess.

    Beta-blockers haven't really worked for me either. I seem to do much better on anti-inflammatory meds, specifically doxycycline and hydroxychloroquine.

    It worked for me at first, but after two weeks of taking it it give me a huge rebound effect and the worst redness on my face i ever had , even on places where I never was red. So after another week I drop it. And the next 3 days was even worse. The withdrawal effect was huge on me, smth to compare if I would be an alcoholic and dropped drinking. I was sweating and my whole body felt like im passing away.

    Was that withdrawal from propranolol? What dose were you on?
