Aaaagh! Please can anyone offer some advice on dealing with patches of awful burning nerve pain? Since last week I have been suffering with this and whilst some areas, like my left shoulder and arm are constant, there are patches that come and go on my face,back and legs,lasting anything from a few minutes to four or five hours. They are so uncomfortable that the slightest touch, or even a breeze, brings me near to tears.
Wearing clothes is particularly uncomfortable,so have been opting for tighter fitting clothing,as the discomfort from them is less than the pain and nausea that easier moving fabric causes.
My GP has suggested Co-cocodamol. I am loathed to have them as I seem to react to lots of things, but this constant shifting of sensory overload is unbearable at times. Any advice welcomed.
