Re: anyone with allodynia? pain with light touch, breeze,clothes, cold etc
Yes i have this nightmare in my L arm on up over both shoulderblades.It is called central pain syndrome.Unfortunetly there is not alot of meds to treat this nasty crap from hell.The best things that have worked for me are the lidocaine patches(not the gel,it does not work as well as the patches)doxipin cream?I don't know why this works but it does.My physiatrist Rxed this for me whenthe pain first started while I was in rehab recovering from a spinal cord surgery.one thing that I have not tried but I am strongly considering right now is Methadone.For some reason it helps quite well with nerve pain.again, don't know why, it just does.If I were you, i would do some research on central pain syndrome.You will be amazed at how well your symptoms fit this.marcia
