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

  1. I am 69 years old & live in Canada. A few weeks ago I was normal, but now I am incapacitated and in the hospital with a very rare disorder called CIDP.
    Have you heard of it before?
    Have you helped anybody with CIPD before?

    Having pain right side of hip worsen while lying on back at night. There is no problem in walking and standing.

  3. Hi, I have nerve and tissue damage all over my body from treating an illness. The illness is now in check. I have throbbing on the back of my head, burning redness in both ears, and cheeks, my right arm and hand is intermittently cold, and I can feel the nerves and tissue damage in my lower and thoracic back, and above and underneath the right thigh. This travels down my right leg to my feet, and it’s worse in my right toes, but also soles of my left foot. I saw a natural Homeopath who didn’t know a lot about treating nerve damage. I researched and am taking Spigelia and Sanguinaria for each side of my face, and though I’ve been taking 30c of each, three times a day, six days a week, I feel these should be increased to 200c x 3 p.d. x 6 days p.w. The new Homeopath I’m dealing with still doesn’t seem to know a lot about treating nerves. He’s given me x 2 treatments for my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and, skin (this is severe in certain areas of my body), but he hasn’t written on them what they are. I take them together, as I do the Spigelia and Sanguinaria, x twice a day. He also does acupuncture but doesn’t say what for. I also take Aqua Pura x 1 p.d. x 5 days p.w., for my gut, as that was affected by the illness I treated too, and I am sure my Vagus nerve is affected from my gut to my head. At weekends, I rotate taking Arsenicum or Sympyhytum, one for health anxiety and one for my Osteoporosis. I’d like to ask about increasing the Spigelia and Sanguinaria, and, if there is anything else I can take for the redness in my ears and face, and nerve damage in my right arm, leg, toes and thoracic area of my back. Oh, I forgot, I do also take Jaborandi 30c once a day for sweating, which is under control with that. Thanks, Pam.
