Re: Pain meds and supplements
I have had neuropathy for 3 years...more recently diagnosed with nonsystemic vascultic neuropathy & autoimmune neuropathy. I take cymbalta, lyrica, imuran, B6,
B12, butrans pain patch and oxicocet for break through pain. I receive IVIG every 4 weeks. Pain is something that no one understands unless they have suffered from neuropathy pain. It's there 24/7. I have difficulty walking, getting out of a chair & holding something. Hot & cold bother my feet & hands constantly.
Don't get too down, you have to keep trying to figure out whats wrong and how to live with it. That is difficult I know. Try and find things to do that make you happy...make the disease part of your life not that it is your life. Music helps, talking, making a daily schedule with very little on it as just getting out of bed is a task in itself. If your not happy with your dr's , change them. I have a neuromuscular DR, a pain Dr. a Neurologist and a family Dr. It took me some time to find them and I am happy with their treatment. I am high some days more than others but that is my choice over the pain. keep positive , we are here for you. Take care, June
