Reply To: Nerve "zingers"?

Thanks yall!! It’s really the strangest thing.. the area on the outside of my left ankle/lower leg that used to be so sensitive now seems resolved.. though It’s strange, but i can’t tell if i’m more numb, or less numb or the same since it resolved.. the one on my hand is healing and now the bottom of my other foot is bothering me- it’s really so odd!!! Stevemckean- I get the shocks, especially when I’m going into an exacerbation.. I remember the ones down my back (not typical sciatica, something very different).. in the beginning and after my first big exacerbation

Bill- oh the itching!!! I have been having a tough time with that recently!!! I can scratch and scratch till I bleed (literally), but it doesn’t seem to satisfy the itch! it’s like my skin is numb, but the itch nerve is fully intact… it’s maddening! Benadryl doesn’t seem to help.. except it will knock me out so I dont’ feel it anymore!
