y hospital consultant has just prescribed axsain capsaicin cream with the posibility of the same drug but massively stronger being administered in hospital under anasthetic x12 weekly. It is a compound of chill peppers. Early days but the cream seems to do something positivee after years and years of nothing working including strong oral oain killers steroid injections and nerve blocks. So has anyone else had experience with the chilli pepper treatment and especially the patches which are administered in a clinical setting and are likely to burn. Is it worth it.
