I'm Rae. I've had Spinal Cord Stimulator for 5 months and really like it. HOWever, it does not take away 100% of pain and I knew that, so I'm not complaining.
I just want to know WHAT meds work for those of you who suffer from burning pain. My legs constantly burn from peripheral neuropathy.
I'm trying to find out what I can possibly take to cover the rest of the pain that the SCS doesn't.
I've tapered off opioids (except Lortab for breakthru pain) but I feel as tho I go thru those too quickly.
Is there something that works at targeting this burning pain? For 'as needed' basis.
I don't want to go on Lyrica (Been there done that and blew up like a hotair balloon) Neurontin, Amitriptyline....none of these will work. Tried topical aids.
