Why test for neuropathy if there is no cure?

I have both books by Doige. I would like to know what would be the appropriate mental exercises for reprograming the brain for Small Fiber Neuropathy which was caused by the Shingrix vaccine? Would it be to focus on eliminating the pain (shrinking pain brain maps areas) or stopping the production of the offending antibodies or both. What would the exercises specifically consist of???

Hi Don. I first heard about Doidge's books from Barry @user_che214927 who extols the use of neuroplasticity. From what he has said he uses it to change his own behavior, such as stopping itching and reducing the number of times he needs to get up at night to go to the bathroom. I guess through willpower. But, although he does say his neuropathy is not getting worse, I don't remember him mentioning reducing his pain level with neuroplasticity. I too would love to know whether neuroplasticity related exercises exist that can help to cut down PN pain. I have not been able to come up with anything intuitively. If brain maps have gotten larger from the constant sensation of pain, how does one reverse that, what type of exercises would one need to do? I don't know.
