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

    Dr. Sharma,
    I was in bad accident in 2012 and started with 2 herniated discs L-4 and L-5. Now after all these years, all 5 discs in my Lumbar spine are herniated and I have nerve impingement at L-4 to L-5 and L-5 to S1. The specialist wants to put me on Gabapentin but I do not want to be on that strong of a medicine. Do you know of or have a homeopathic combo that would work to take care of the pain I get especially at night. I have weakness in my low back, I can no longer lift more than 10 lbs. and cannot just bend over (I have to stoop to pick things up off the floor. Most of my pain goes down my rt. leg to top of foot. I also have Osteoporosis real bad in both hips and osteopenia going up the spine into my neck along with arthritis of the spine. I do have a lot of stomach problems from a Hiatel hernia, gastritis, diverticulosis and IBS so I need something that is sublingual. I am only a 59 year old female and feel like I am 80. I can’t go on living like this. I want to enjoy my kids and grandkids again. Please help!

  3. Mrs Margaret Allen says:

    Hi, I have suffered ‘all over body’
    nerve pain for over 20 years. Doctors have never taken me seriously, they have just dismissed my symptoms every time. I am at my wits end and feel I really cannot go on like this.
    I am 67 years old.
    I’m better when I’m busy, as it keeps my mind off the constant pain. But night after night I find it impossible to sleep. I really am desperate.
    I was hit by a car about 40 years, ago, that started off a, stutter which I get especially now if I’m tired. But its getting more and more worse.
    I’m desperate. Thank you.

  9. Donna Tritto says:

    My husband has been on this medication for 2 wees now. He woke up yesterday with extreme tingling all over his body. What are the side affects for this medicine?

  10. Bev Harper. For Jim says:

    My husband has had non-diabetic peripheral neuropathy for many years. It is usually pain in his right foot, but sometimes his left stump. It was probably triggered by exposure to Agent Orange in 18 months of service in Vietnam. He has had an amputation of left leg below the knee due to collapsed ankle. (Sharko) His main pain drugs were Fentenal patch and Gabapentin.. The Fentenal was recently replaced with Hydrocodone/Acetaminophen. He had a spinal stimulator put in last year with poor results. (He takes 6 other prescriptions for other conditions.) I have tried Hypericum, up to 200C, and several other remedies. . Not much help. He describes the pain as “standing in fire” or “a little guy with an icepick stabbing away”. It prevents him from sleeping, and is usually worse at night, getting more severe. Ice pack treatments sometimes help. He is 80 years old.
    I am looking for anything to give him some relief.
