Thank You for some hopeful new approach. My pain is so intense I am amazed my feet are not just bursting into flames. I will ask my pain and neurologist about IP.
Bless all of you who suffer I value each of you who help me not to feel so alone,

I can relate to feet bursting into flames. This is one horrid illness. I put my feet into a cold bath when it happens. When I get out, the burning is there. Also, my neurologist says that opiods do not do much for neuropathy. So the main treatment of opiods in the IP book is not really acknowledged by neurologists. However, I am now curious again if maybe opiods do work. Opiods are such a touchy subject, because they are so badly abused, so sometimes I think neurologists do not want to prescribe them. I am thinking of talking to my pharmacist about opiods in the treatment of neuropathy. May get a more impartial response from a pharmacist, because he cannot write prescriptions. Meanwhile, we suffer. Take care, and try to fight this fight as best you can. Find things to bring joy, without too many calories!!!! Lori Renee
