Finding Meds

Finding Meds

Is anyone experiencing thinking of trying to find the the right medication to help with discomfort, pain, tingling, numbing and burning? I've tried so many, none has helped.

none of it worked for me, just wasted money. Walking and anti inflammortories like liq gel advil helps a lot, the burning. Tingling, pain, and numbness is here to stay, its nerve damage, i have it in arms, fingers, toes, feet, legs, the tiny nerves in my skin make it feel like bee stings and something crawling up my legs and arms. My arms go dead at night. But all this becomes less important or an issue when we focus on life, happiness and living to the fullest, a sense of humor is paramount to relieve pain smd be happy.we have a choice to suffer through this, or go on with our lives. There is no moracle cure, doctors shots. And high priced meds dont work, we have to take care of ourselves, pain is here to stay, no cures, face it for what it is, and its not such a monster, just an inconvience sometimes. We must decide. Not a dr, or neighbor. Just us.

Gabapentin was horrible. So far lyrica works well for me.
