I have experimented with keeping my hands and warm when I get that painful feeling. I have found that putting on socks even in the bed takes away the pain.
I take CBD oil and have gotten off all of my pain meds. I would highly recommend it.
I myself take lyric 100 mg three times a day and it works wonders for me. If I miss it or run out... I sure can tell when I don’t take it. At times I can’t stand for the sheet to touch my feet.
The good news is that nerve pain is very treatable. Many studies have shown that using nutritional support with lipoic acid 300 mg 2x day, Acetyl-L-Carnitine 2,000 mg a day, Inositol (500-1,000 mg a day), and vitamins B6 (50-100 mg a day) and B12 (500-5,000 mcg a day—both B vitamins and Inositol are in the Energy Revitalization System vitamin powder) can actually help heal the nerves and decrease or eliminate the pain. Nerves take time to heal, so natural remedies need to be taken for 3-12 months. In the interim, holistic pharmacies can make powerful creams combining multiple medications effective against nerve pain (available by prescription from ITC Pharmacy at (Phone number can only be seen by the question and answer creators); called the nerve pain gel). These are rubbed over the painful areas, and can be very effective after 1-2 weeks of use. Being rubbed on the skin though, the total dose to the rest of your body is very low, making it largely side effect free! Other medications can also be very effective.
Wow, reading all of these posts helps! Numbness and tingling in my feet now for almost 10 years and now in my hands. They just ache all the time! I have found that keeping them warm does help! Gabapentin caused blood in my urine, so that's out, then they gave me a topical gabapentin, didn't help either. I do use some vicks vapor rub and actually it helps some,lol. And yes, when I eat something with sugar, it gets worse! I have purchased CBD oil, but I ingested it. Should I rub it on?
