I am a 65-year-old male. I had cancer before four years and was in a coma for about four times. My remission is a miracle. I have severe neuropathy in feet and poor control over the last three years. Even narcotics do not work and now exploring alternatives.
My question is for the last six months I am experiencing wandering intense burning throughout the body. There was no diagnosis for it. Please suggest any idea. I am currently on 15 pain killers, antidepressant Effexor and Quetiapine.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I would advise you on the following, for the next one month, for relief.
(a) Alpha Lipoic Acid R+, 300 mg twice daily.
(b) Vitamin B12 (Methylcobalamine), 500 mg daily.
(c) Omega-3 fatty acid 1000 mg twice daily.
Additionally, I would also advise you to go for acupuncture, by any competent acupuncturist. At the same time, do streamline your diet and lifestyle. Follow essentially a mediterranean diet pattern and exercise daily for 30 to 45 minutes. Stay well hydrated, positive and relaxed.
