I had zeltiq done on my abdomen and flanks about 1 week ago (9 days). I have had severe stabbing pins-needle type pain in the treated areas since, where I am unable to sleep. No relief with over-the-counter pain meds. When I had the zeltiq done, the practictioner said that I should do another cycle to maximize results. This wasn't something they had discussed beforehard, but now said had to do immediately to increase the "freezing." I was already in a vulnerable position, and felt like I had to defer to their expertise. I think it was unethical to spring this on me, and then not discuss potential risks. I can't help but think I wouldn't be in such pain if I had stuck to the single cycle. I wish I could go back and not get this done.
