Visited the pain clinic today for my neuropathic pain and the consultant has finally agreed that drugs don't work on me so next week I am going to have high concentrated capcaisin patches under medical supervision at the hospital. The procedure should take one hour and if successful should deaden the pain after initial burning sensation for up to three months. Apparently it is very expensive which is why they prefer you to take drugs and help fund the pharmaceutical companies.
Wish me luck. After four years of suffering it would be wonderful to have some relief if only temporary.
Has anyone else had this treatment?
