My name is Jennifer and I was diagnosed with ms fourteen years ago, about ten years ago I developed nerve pain it started in mt legs and now it is all over. I attend a wonderful pain climic and after trying various med we eventually started with the lignocaine infusions, I am totally free of nerve pain for 4 to 6 weeks after each infusion and all was working well until the Irish government cut the pain clinics resources by 3/4 I now receive an infusion every 4mts which means I have to live with the burning pain for months at a time. Those of you who have nerve pain will know pain meds dont really work they just dope you up I hate having to live like this its bad enough having ms which has progressed quite a bit in the past year I am now a wheelchair user.
I have heard that setivate (not sure of spelling) helps with the spasm and pain I cant get it here in Ireland but will go up to northern Ireland if it is as good as I heard it is. I cant go back on the oxy’s its a living death at one stage I was in bed for 8 weeks I am a wife and mum and want to make the best of my lot while I can.
Any advice appreciated
