The doctors say I have post neuropathic pain from shingles around my mid-section. It has been several years of hot,burning,aching, super sensitive skin . The heat is the worst of all. I have tried B12 shots ; been to a pain clinic that could not help; endured other extremely painful shots of no help. I refuse to believe something cannot be done. I read about Intraneural Facilitation but it seems only available in California. It sounds like a possibility but I do not know if it would work around my waistline/ abdomen. Does anyone have any experiences on things that worked for this problem ? It greatly affects my sleep as well.
