Neuropathic Pain

Neuropathic pain is a complex, chronic pain that usually is accompanied by tissue injury. However with neuroborreliosis, neuropathic pain is caused by the spirochetes infecting the central nervous system and causing infamation in the nerve endings.

With Lyme infection, the nerve fibers themselves may be damaged, dysfunctional or injured depending upon the stage of infection. These damaged nerve fibers send incorrect signals to other pain centers.

The hallmark of Lyme pain is that it "starts and stops" or "moves around". The major difference between neuropathic pain and regular pain is the acute degree of pain.  "Dull" aches or "throbbing" aches would never describe neuropathic pain. 

"Sharp" or "stabbing" describes neuropathic pain best.

How to manage neuropathic pain

Pain clinics are a good choice  for people with chronic neuropathic pain because the doctors understand the degree of suffering and can prescribe suitable opiates or narcotics. My doctor continues to reassure me that taking narcotics for unbearable pain is a smart medical decision NOT a moral one.  I was so afraid of being addicted to the pain meds when in fact they allow me to live.  So perhaps they are evil if abused but they are from God for people who suffer badly with neuropathic pain.

Natural treatments can be very effective for some.  An excellent article detailing herbal pain relievers can be found at:

A great products I use and recommend for neuropathic pain, insomnia and anxiety is GABA.

My new LLMD in Spain has recommended Magnesium Oil and DMSO for topical application for pain.  I am amazed - especially by the DMSO how it takes care of painful rashes like shingles and helps the scarring disappear as well.

For panic attacks I recommend Panic Away.
