Right, Prolo tends not to be as effective for neurological origins of pain. Two suggestions, although maybe you've already explored them:
1) Mega B vitamins (B vitamins are associated with the nerves) to replace those depleted by the spirochetes.
2) A magnetic mattress pad. I use Nikken but there are other less expensive ones.
I'm a big fan of Chinese boiling herbs as well. Because they are based on one's own individual pulses it's not a "one size fits all" situation. I think, as in most cases, the training and skill of the practitioner is important. I've been using them for years to address many ailments associated with lyme.
