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

  5. M L BHATIA says:

    I suffer from neuropathy and have pain, sometimes very acute, in my foot fingers, both feet but more particularly in left foot fingers and also in feet soles. I have been under treatment of a neurologist at a well known hospital for the last three years or so but with no relief. I have been taking vitamin B-12 for nearly 15 years and have been having injections of B-12 also and had nearly 80 to 100 injections of Rejunex . Have been having Gabapen 300 (earlier 400 NT) for nearly 3 years as main medicine. Sometimes Doctor also prescribes pain killers when pain is almost unbearable. But all this treatment has not cured my problem and I feel having the same problem, without any effect. Please prescribe a suitable and effective homeopathic medicine for my problem. (Additional information: I have had open heart surgery some 6-7 years ago. Have been having somewhat high BP for nearly 30 years or so and take one tablet everyday for BP. Also suffer from sleeplessness for many years). Thanks

    Can Magnesium powder help? And if so in what form and quantity?

    • Julia Nelson says:

      I have stabbing nerve pain in my right inner knee with pain in my lower back sometimes as well. It is usually worse lying down and at night but now it hurts in the day as well. Walking, cleaning, gardening make it worse. I have tried Mag Phos, Causticum, Rhus tox and others to no avail. Pain killers don’t really help either. I’ve been told it could be trama/stress that my body needs to release. That my nervous system has been in hypervigilance my whole life. Thoughts?

  13. Beverley Beddow says:

    I have severe nerve pain in the knee following an injury to the facet joint. It is believed that the inflammed facet joint is irritating the spinal nerve root (possibly L4). The nerve irritation is very bad and by the end of the day I can hardly walk. Do you think homeopathy would help and if so, which remedy (or remedies) would you recommend?

  14. Shane Fernandez says:

    Dear dr
    Recently I am suffering from from frozen shoulder but now feel that 90% of the pain has gone away. But of late I have developed numbness in my right hand my fingers are not opening and closing. And my right leg also has numbness effect. On my left leg there is a bad nerve pain as a result I am not able to walk properly.

  15. Any ideas for nerve pain from sciatica and DDD on left side?
    Thank you.

  16. Deb Maligranda says:

    Dr. Sharma, My husband suffered a severe muscle injury in both the shoulder and groin (for a while he believed he had a hernia but the surgeon showed him on the CT scan that it was simply severe muscle damage). As the muscle pain has been healing he is suffering terribly with apparent nerve damage. The skin on his chest and back are so sensitive and painful that he believed he may have acquired shingles his skin is totally clear with no lesions or rash of any kind. Would like your advice on relief. Thank you, Deb Maligranda

  17. Cecily Cline says:

    I have PLS which causes a variety of issues, including neuropathy in my toes. Is Hypericum the best one to try first, or is there a better option?

  18. Lon Fricano says:

    Greetings Doctor-
    I have used Homeopathic remedies for a long time and have been trying to repitorize my symptoms to address peripheral neuropathy. I am 74 years old and am a retired Paramedic. I have become quite debilitated with terrible pains mostly in my right foot with tingling and burning, worse at night. I am currently taking gabapentin, duloxetine and nsaids. Since adding the duloxetine(40mg x 1) I have had increased relief but still have break through pain. My hands have become very affected with increased pain on extension and constant numbness/tingling sensations. Any suggestions would be most gratefully accepted. THANKYOU and God Bless you.

  19. Hello Dr. Sharma,

    My name is Amanda and I am a 26 year old single mother to a 4 year old. I am relatively new to the homeopathic world and strive to have a very natural life rooted in Earth’s elements, and to teach my son the same. I have been experiencing tingling sensations in my hands, forearms, and legs. I also have a burning sensation in my scalp as well as sharp sudden pains in my chest and back, which are the scariest. When I massage the areas, they typically feel ‘better’. I went to my PCP who had me do a chest xray, blood work, and a stool sample which all came back “normal”. She basically dismissed my symptoms and told me to come back in a month. I am looking for true genuine help and healing of these symptoms before it becomes something grave. Please let me know where I might be able to seek help or if you are at all familiar with these symptoms. Thank you in advance.

  20. Richard T says:

    I have a “psychotic” rectal area nerve, firing false signals of pain on and on and on, and is triggered by solid, liquid or gaseous matter or no matter at all. Surgery has been performed and there ha been no change. Thie pain is unbearable
