Re: what is a dose for nerve pain/can vicodin help
a big ditto on the ins and outs of what will usually not work and what does for most levels of real nerve pain. really great advice there.
i am just wondering what your nerve pain is stemming from? where is it and what is causing it to even be there? is this related to a spinal issue or something else? what any type of actual pain will and will not in most cases really respond to depends more upon just what other possible issues came along with the underlying nerve pain too? like and injury or inflammation can be sometimes minimized with certain narcotics when it is also invloving more 'normal' components that also would just add to the overall "intensity" of the nerve pain kind of thing?
as an example here, my RSD i have in my knee down thru my foot will not respond at all to narcotics, BUT the deep bone pain and some structural damage i have in there too DOES respond to my narcotics? but this hidious deep hot and cold sick burning that IS RSD pain and the hypersensitivity it has too, no way does that particular crap ever respond to any level of narcotic, and it does not matter what strength/type they are either. it simply does not respond to that opiate receptor within the brain at all.
simply knowing what the actual 'source' of your nerve pain is from would help us to really help you in all the best ways. Marcia
