I have severe nerve pain and right leg weakness after having an unsuccessful lumbar laminectomy. Everything I try has side effects (to treat the nerve pain) such as muscle weakness. Does anyone know if these so called "natural" treatments advertised on the web actually work? Any side effects? Has anybody used any of these. Also, is there any legitimate nerve pain treatment that does not involve muscle weakness (as with Gabapentin, Lyrica, Metaxalone, etc.). Thanks for your thoughts.
Sorry, no suggestions for the meds if gabapenten and lyrica do not work. 3 months is still early, nerves heal very slowly. Hopefully things will gradually improve over the next 6 to 9 months. Krill Oil (an Omega 3 plus) is widely reported to help nerve healing. I take it for inflammation since I Can't use NSAIDs.
