🌡 Lung Diease & Neuropathic Pain & Axsain Cream

Well for past week been suffering chest back pain O and hand.

Guess like shingle’s pain but with out rash spots.

Been horrific and no pain killers would touch it ... anyway I had enough and went doctors 👨‍⚕️

Doctor checked me out for plaura rub or effusion.

Lucky 🍀 for me was none of them SO he said I was suffering from Neuropathic Pain.

How why is anyone’s idea💡

But chest pain is last thing you want when suffering from chronic copd lung diease.

My doctor 👨‍⚕️ say’s it’s nerve pain I.e Neuropathic Pain.

Why shingles like tho BECOUSE it’s associated with abnormal sensations DYSESTHESIS and from normally none-painful activates movements.

ALLODYNIA continuous or episodic paroxysmal.

Truly painfull NEEDLESS to say I have not been able to sleep 🛏 proper unless sat up is the new normal.

I just hope AXSAIN CREAM works as pain killers never.

Glad to see your post JeffAjaxSmith I was about to write one myself asking if anyone knew where you were because I hadn't seen your name for a while. Sorry you're in so much pain. I was given Gabapentin tablets for neuropathy. Let's hope this AXsain cream works for you. Try to take it easy, Sheila x

Sorry to hear your not feeling good and in pain Jeff, so I won't wish you a happy christmas instead hope you feel better soon and Santa can bring you a sack of health for the new year. There is a virus going round here causing symptoms like flu or pnuemonia with chest pain , not good if you are already ill. Take care, look after yourself and most of all keep warm
