For those who suffer neuropathic pain… Best self help strategy?
I’ve been dealing with terrible neuropathic pain since 2010. Was put on gabapentin in April and currently take 600mg a day. Doesn’t seem to be helping during this relapse. I also have tight muscles in my legs and arms but marked more on my left hand side compared to the right. Can’t get any relief and I’m finding it hard to get a good nights sleep and painful trying to walk around the house. I have 2 young children, one who has duchennes M.D and has limited mobility so I don’t really have the chance to rest. Also have the lhermitte’s sign
At the moment I’m waiting to hear whether I can be prescribed oral steroids for my relapse. My neurologist is on annual leave (who told my m.s nurse she would prescribe them for this relapse) so now the decision lies with a neurologist who has never met me or knows my medical history well.
