Re: Burning neck/face pain/ increases with exercise/please help

Hi, I totally feel your pain. Until you suffer with this type of burning, you just have no idea. I have figured out a way to describe this burning so that my family has a better understanding of what i'm going through. To me it feels like thousands of fire ants are stinging. I have neuropathy and experience this terrible burning in my face, hands, and feet. When this happens, I use ice packs to cool things down. Thankfully, I don't have the burning all of the time. I recently tried vicks vapor rub on my feet for the burning and it helped. I also take 400mg of lyrica and 75mg of nortriptilyne per day. When I am having the burning episode, darvacet seems to help too. I wish you the best and hope that you will heel in time.
