Non opioid alternatives for chronic peripheral neuropathy.
I have had chronic peripheral neuropathy for 8 years. I live in central Canada. I am on two opioids (methadone for pain NOT addiction and hydromorphone). I am also on Pregablin.
My pain specialist is following the Chronic Pain Guidelines here with the instruction to taper off my opioid medication with the goal of taking me off the meds completely.
Does anyone have suggestions for non-opioid interventions? I’ve tried acupuncture but my physiotherapist says it usually won’t help after the first 3 years of neuropathy symptoms.
