Default AVM right leg

This is first time I have found a forum for AVMs that are not on the brain or spine.

My daughter will be 17 this month and has an AVM on her right leg around the knee area. She has had schlerotherapy (I think this is the correct spelling) on three occasions. This helps for some months and then the AVM becomes extremely painful again. She is at this stage at the moment and upset because she has major exams in a few weeks time and doesn't know how she will stand the pain.

Can anyone suggest any tried and tested pain relief?

We live in the highlands of Scotland and do not know of anyone else with this condition.

I would love to hear from anyone who can offer any help or advice especially if there is anyone from Britain reading this.
