I hear you! So your nerve pain got better with time you think?
[QUOTE=yuehan]My left foot drop preceded my C5-C6-C7 fusion by almost 26 years.
The fusion symptoms and the other symptoms occurred concurrently. The fusion relieved the majority of it’s specific symptoms. Unfortunately, the weakness and, ultimately, the CIDP related symptoms progressed over the following 10 years.
My worst, thank goodness, nerve pain(s) were only in my right hand and were incorrectly diagnosed as carpal tunnel and then anterior interosseous syndrome.
Oh, well, I’ve tried every medicine mentioned here, and then some. Couldn’t begin to speculate what ‘fixed’ my nerve pain. I look back over the years and realized it quit hurting.
Good luck to you.[/QUOTE]
I use a heated matress pad for my bed, it works well for me. My doctor told me to always were socks and a Good pair of tennis shoes, even around the house. To my surprise this helped a lot too.
I know what works for one doesn’t always work for the other……..I hope this helps. 😮
If you had nerve pain, trust me you would know. At my worst, the first 2 1/2 years being strictly in a power chair, I would beg my neuro as well as my husband to have my feet amputated. The pain was so severe that even with 3600 mg of neurontin daily I would still be in excrutiating pain in my feet; there would be tears coming down & I wasn’t even aware of it. I wasn’t even walking or putting any pressure on them at that time. It hurt to even touch a toe to the floor, or to even touch my feet at all. But I had extensive nerve damage to my feet & to this day I still do.
I couldn’t even imagaine 1/2 a day without neurontin now. I don’t think I would take it just for tingling, however, as it does cause some drowsiness & possibly “brain fog.” But for most of us it is a necessity of life.
