Homeopathic Medicines For Nerve Pain

Nerve pain can feel like an electric shock, or like a pinprick or even a burning sensation. Nerve pain is a symptom of various medical conditions. It can disturb and alter your life. The countless nerves are the body’s messaging system — conveying sensations like a pain to the brain. In the case of nerve pain, the messaging system gets disturbed because of damage to the nerve from a physical injury or a disease. It is thus not easy to recognise the cause of the nerve pain. The Homeopathic medicines for nerve pain are of great help in providing relief to the patient without any side effects as these are made of natural substances. These natural remedies are given after carefully noting down the symptoms, identifying the reasons for nerve pain and extricating from the root the underlying causes of nerve pain.   homeopathic medicines for nerve pain

  2. Alok Bhatnagar says:

    About a month back my wife reported with numb right cheek , chin and tongue over which she was getting burning sensation. MRI was done and she was diagnosed with demyelination disease in the early stages. She has been on steroids for one month. Her cheek and chin are normal now and about 55% improvement in the tongue numbness also. All her other perimeters are normal. She has normal eyesight, hearing , speech and movement in limbs. There is no numbness or pain or weakness in limbs. Its been a month ever since this steroid treatment was started but her tongue hasn’t shown any further improvement. Another MRI has been conducted now and that shows mild deterioration even as per her clinical symptoms she feels better except for her tongue which still numb at the tip though as mentioned earlier it is better than the numbness she was feeling when the treatment was started a month back. Can you suggest a good homeopathic medicine for the above problem.

  6. Rebecca York says:

    I had a stroke in 1992 a week before my 15 birthday. I was diagnosed in 2020 with thalamic pain syndrome. I have been taking 75 mg of lyrica and 60mg cymbalta. (I was taking 30 of cymbalta until June 1st) They have helped tremendously with the pain but I do not want to take them forever. Plus I have read things about side effects and that scares me.

    I have cervical and thoracic stenosis of the spine due to injury (2 car wrecks within six months
    of each other years ago)
    I am particularly suffering from pain in neck and radiating down both arms into my hands
    The outside of each arm is particularly the area that is affected
    I am wondering if a combination of Hypericum and some other remedy might be
    appropriate and if so, how does one take more than 1 remedy and how often?
    I took Hypericum several days ago and it was very beneficial but it is back again.
    I have refused RXd drugs and the OTC e.g. Aleve tear up my stomach (even aspirin is
    a hard sell after 1 day)
    Thanks so much for any assistance
