Due to Sjogrens autoimmune disease, it has attacked the nerve endings and the pain is excruciating. No drug has really helped for more than a few hours. Is there surgery available to help alleviate,remove, deaden this pain in these nerve endings?


  • Wow I'm sorry you are having to deal with this complication of your condition. Unfortunately neuropathic pain is the hardest pain to treat and their are meds and some procedures to help depending on cause of the nerve pain and extent of damage done .have you spoken with your doctor about rhizotomy or spinal cord stimulation?
  • They need to cure the autoamune dissorder before treating the after affect pain if pain is still there after its cured. Have they done this yet or no? Plazma phereses is one of the treatments that can fitler the bad antibodies from your body and get the condition resolved and only once thats resolved can they adress the pain condition if its still there. Good luck. Hope you have a very good neuro to help you,
