Neuropathy Pain at Night: What helps?

Posted by Donald @donfeld, Jun 8, 2020

THC or marijuana for me relieves pain from neuropathy. It works every time takes a few minutes and a few puffs of smoke and it comes it down for some crazy reason that makes this drug so popular.

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Neuropathy Support Group.

Strangely perhaps, but for neuropathy pain at night, rubbing Vicks Vapo Rub into the affected area before going to bed helps. (Note: "rubbing" rather than just applying.)
Who knew that the product rubbed on our chests for colds when we were children would have important benefits in our later lives?

My legs hurt all day. The only relief I get is when medicine knocks me out. Then I cry in the morning because I know what is going to happen when I wake up.

I saw a video on neuropathy and krill oil on youtube.
said it helps the pain. I went to store and bought
some krill oil the dosage was like 125mg
I took 2 pills. Went to bed at 9pm that night, my feet did not hurt for the 1st time
in years. I was very excited, my feet were 90 percent better

Good to hear. It would be helpful if you provide an update in another week or so. In the meantime, I'll do some research as well.

So happy for you, keep us posted.
I'm using krill oil for years now, even before neuropathy started, but no help with pain.

Same here. I am adding straight fish oil now too and seeing if the addition helps.

It has helped with the "electrification" of my feet. that part of the neuropothy has changed.
My feet do feel better but I still have neuropathy.

I find that a couple big puffs of smoke from a little pipe it's an instant result. It seems to immediately reduce the tingly and just call me down so I can tolerate it and it also makes me very sleepy. Hallelujah. Thank you God for making this medication that's so natural without any side effects. Smoking the stuff for 40 years going strong as it solves all my stomach pain and other issue problems. Had cancer and is great with chemo!

In the afternoon my pain usually starts to tingling and my feet feel cold. Adding warmth doesn't help but I start with Voltaren gel which helps a little for a while. Unfortunately, the pain sneaks up on me and b y dinner's end my toes are in excruciatingly pain. I put more Voltaren gel, take Robinorol, take Tramadol and gently wrap my feet in a warming pad. The evening and night are the worst. I often have to take more Tramadol and sleep med. In the morning my toes are warm and pain free. For a few hours I can forget about my feet.
