It's not all the time, but the nerve pain I get in my toes is intense when it flares up and I'd like ton find a way to deal with it and/or lessen it
There are several medications on the market today to treat diabetic neuropathy. Two that are I can recommend are Cymbalta or Lyrica. Both are specifically used for neuropathy amongst other things. To see a list of medicines used for this condition go to:
This is a list of the top 20 most popular medications for this condition. You will notice that cymbalta and lyrica are the most widely prescribed (have the most reviews). Many of these medications are topicals and several are antidepressants like the Cymbalta and Pamelor.
Hope this helps a bit,
Hi ade! Nice to meet you! :)
I live in Ontario & use an alternative treatment once a month called Kohki. It originated in Japan & has practitioners in Australia as well. I have chronic pain similar to Fibro in addition to liver pain & this therapy has just been miraculous for me! There's an office located in downtown Toronto.
I'd also suggest for you to look at reiki, reflexology or acupuncture as other remedies. I haven't personally used any of these but know of others who have had success in different areas.
Please indulge yourself with a warm bath with epsom salts as this would likely give you some pain relief too, ade. :D
Good luck! All the best!
Please friend me if you wish.

I have found that as an alternative to taking medication for the pain if u have allready taken your meds and the pain is still there and you cant take anymore yet is to apply a heating pad or really hot cloth onto the place of pain and sit back and relax about twenty minutes. The heat sometimes tends to relax the nerves running and will ease the pain feeling for a while.
