looking for natural healing

Hello everyone I have a quick question .... I have added a new supplement to my care along with valerian root and hops (for nerve pain) I've just added acetyl L-carnitine 1000mg...I suffer with both p/n, ingunal and sciatica nerve pain. Today is day 3 and I do feel alittle better less pain with sitting and less of a ball feeling when I sit...I have been told by my herbalist that the acetyl L-carnitine acts like gabapentin. Has anyone else used this for nerve pain/health?

Hi Pizon

I have suffered with neuropathic pain this time round without any type of reprieve for 9 years now going on 10!! How I'm carrying on I do not know! I feel that now my body is trying to tell me that it's had enough. From bad nails to hair falling out. I am at a loss as to where to turn now. My consultant has passed me on to yet another consultant saying he couldn't come up with any more ideas! 😞 You'd think in this day and age they would have an answer. Not to completely be pain free but on a pain threshold be below an 8/9.

I haven't heard of this but I will be looking into it. Because I am willing to try anything. I do take Valerian root and Hops tablets on an evening to try and relax me. Without them I would not be able to chill enough to drift off. Some days I can feel the nerves in my pelvic region vibrating like mad and it drives me crazy, what with the pain and vibrating..........woe !!! So thanks for bringing this to my attention.

Sorry I can't be of any help with your querie. I dop hope you get some help and feel much better soon. Sounds like it could be having some Kind of positive effect on you..let's hope so, fingers crossed!!
