Having run out of options to treat this condition I am interested to know if anyone has tried capsaicin (cayenne piment) which I have heard can give relief up to three months but it has to be administered in a hospital pain clinic here in France.
Since my surgery for stenosis more than three years ago I have unbearable stinging pain in my hands which I compare to like having my hands in a nest of wasps. None of the drugs or therapies have made any difference.
I would like to be prescribed sativex but at the moment it is only for MS Sufferers here in France.
I did contact the London Private clinic Dan suggested. They do prescribe sativex if they think it appropriate but I would need to come to London and a consultation costs £275. I would be willing to pay but unfortunately it is not possible for me to travel to the U.K. At the moment.
By the way what has become of Hardey Leone who entertained us before Christmas.
Also sorry you had such a hard time Paton and missed your carol service. Hope your husband is feeling better.
Bon courage to everyone.
