Sat, Nov 2 1:53pm · Postherpetic Neuralgia (Shingles) nerve damage around eye, eyebrow, forehead & scalp in Skin Health

Have you tried a CBD salve? Maybe you could use it lightly on the eye area. I have a great salve I use for neuropathy in my feet. Get it at anandahemp.com It is 24 dollars, and they have only one salve. I find this salve works even better than compounding cream my neurologist made for me. Good luck…God Bless. Lori Renee

@rwinney Hi Dear Rachel, You feel awful. How to live this way? You take many drugs, but all in all, they do not work very well, and you fear getting out of bed. My heart feels broken, reading/feeling your suffering. I have had a horrid week. I wake up hopeful, and before my eyes are barely both open, the pain sets in. Only Kratom really works, and it is addictive. I have to be so careful with it. Bottom line for this neuropathic stuff, is there are no answers, no drugs, that totally take pain away. I wish I could wave a magic wand, and cure both of us. I know I am better when I walk, but who can walk all day? And why am I better walking? You are so smart, and you work so hard at this. That in itself is exhausting. I have been reading about brain/central pain. Our pain mechanism works too loudly. It is over amplified, and will not stop. I tell myself I am ok, that I do not need pain. That I am safe and well. I "tap," away pain, which sometimes even works. I roll golf balls under my feet. I smoke reifer. I know we are lovely, loving people. Who would ever believe this? I am giving you a hug. I am telling you to cry, and let go. Destress, at least. I am thinking about what to take to get me through the morning. I think, CBD drops. I save Kratom for when I just cannot take it anymore. I hope marijuana works for you. I will get the medical kind when marijuana becomes legal here in Illinois in January. What can I say to you, Rachel? Only that I am here listening and feeling you. Maybe turn on some music, and try to drift to sleep. I wish I had one good answer. Kratom is one good answer, but it scares you. I don't blame you. It scares me. But I take heed, and take it when I must. Your soul is a joy. That I know. Lori Renee

Hi all, It's Lori Renee. I have a hemp salve that really works, and I want to share information about it. Even when I am not in terrible pain, my toes and balls of feet always feel very stiff, and often strangely contorted. This alone, is exhausting, because it is so not normal. Then I add the burning and throbbing, and I am an utter mess. Anyway, I have a product that loosens all the tissue, and takes pain away, unless very severe. When the pain is very severe, it takes the edge off. The product seems to work for about 2 hours. It is a salve. The only drawback, is that it is on the sticky side. Anyway, I find that as a salve, it is superior to anything I use. It costs about 24 dollars. Get it at anandahemp.com They call it a topical cream. They have only one topical product, so you cannot miss it. Just thought I would share. I find it better than the compounding cream my doc ordered for three hundred bucks! Maybe give it a try???

@rwinney Rachel, I hope you really enjoy your daughter's basketball! I just found out that I am going to have a grand daughter, so I am over the moon. My five year old grandson has wanted a sister for a few years now, so he is crazy excited. I am glad your day was better yesterday. I swear, there is little rhyme or reason, a good part of the time. I am pain free today!!!!! Last night, I took a walloping dose of CBD and salves to try to control God awful pain. In two hours, I could be in pain again. I cherish the pain free times. They are few. I hope you figure out your medications, and I do not blame you for not wanting to try Kratom. I just can't find anything that works as well! I still think it is good that you have information about it, cause ya never know. Let me know how your meds work out, keep up with the leg exercises regularly, if only for a bit each day. Being pain warriors is nothing we ever signed up for, that's for sure!!!! Maybe the protocol you are doing will help. You help so many people! You deserve to feel better yourself!!! God Bless you…….
