Re: Nerve damage
Just thought I would share some of my own experience with severe nerve damage that might be of use. After some radical surgeries and radiation, I was left with mucho nerve damage. I have no feeling at all in a section of my stomach (can take a needle in it with no feeling). My leg, however, has been a problem for years with its nerve damage. I so understand the 'numbness, but itching." Also the pain and torment of 'burning' in my leg.
Some new research shows that it might not be old nerves trying to rejuvenate, but rather healthy nerves looking to reconnect with the dead nerves. Anyway, whatever. My point is to tell you that I have recently found that taking magnesium is a huge HELP to this "nerve pain." Just unbelieveable to me. I take one 250 mg tab mid-morning and one 250 mg tab mid-evening. It truly is helping greatly.
Maybe this is something folks may want to try? Just a thought. I think that the nerve damage had been one of the more tormenting symptoms I have had on a sustained basis. It is so greatly reduced now.
Best wishes to all
