Hi @alh123, Thanks for starting this discussion. It certainly would be great if it helps you and others with neuralgia. I found an article from 2018 that discusses the topic in case you haven't seen it.

"n summary, this case report describes exposure to a single-session of sudden immersion into extreme cold water that was associated with an unexpectedly positive outcome of remission of intercostal neuralgia and associated reduced mobility. Feb 12, 2018" --- Cold forced open-water swimming: a natural intervention to improve postoperative pain and mobilisation outcomes?: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5884262/

Here's the movie trailer in case others may also want to watch the show on Netflix - https://youtu.be/0_QWamRowc0

Thanks for posting that info . Yes I’d seen that case study …quite miraculous, similar to the lady in the film. I will say that ice is still the only thing that gives me mild relief …more so in the early days . I used to go dip in the cold ocean and swim with one leg ( no , I didn’t go round in circles!) earlier on my journey , but nothing as drastic as ice water immersion. I wonder if it’s too late ? I’ll keep you posted , as I might as well try it.
