Okay...so the MSM did not work, but I will be trying new vitamins...a new fat soluable B1 and others that have been very effective with diabetic neuropathy. Talked to the president of the company today and he is convinced it will work.
I've tried so many things that I'm not getting my hopes up yet. But, I sure am going to keep on trying! 81/2 years is enough!

And, the story is based on a woman who has post mastectomy pain (like us) who can no longer do her landscaping business. This is soooo exciting!

It's romance, mystery and The Law of Attraction in Vermont. I even did the cover art and design. Tis good to be alive...even if pain woke me up at 4 am...

I'm investigating MSM for my eight years of pain.
Google chronic pain + MSM. I also have a book on the way. The Miracle of MSM.
I'm hoping this is a natural, drug-free way toget my life back.

I am so sorry you are having this as well as the rest of us. You need to find a lymph massage therapist for the swelling. I ocassionally get lymphodema and it adds to the pain. I had a mastectomy 8 years ago.
Forget about the brave face with your sons. Let them help you in any way they can. They will love to do it for you! My son did.
Again, if anyone can handle marijuana...it's the only thing that really works. I can't do it as I get paranoid. But, for twenty minutes, I had no pain whatsoever.

WOW! That is fabulous! I'm doing the massage now as well...I hope it is as effective 61/2 years out.....Thanks for being such a wonderful daughter and friend to us all!
Big Hugs for you both!
Any news yet? Any successes yet?
It's been just two weeks on alpha-lipoic acid, but I had one of the best days ever yesterday. Of course, I then overdid a bit, but am hoping that in a couple of days I can report in that it is working.
Forgot to do the mirror thing. Will do it right now!
Wow! That's a new one for me! I was talking about a full body massage to relax the muscles surrounding the pain.
I will be so interested in what you discover as the latest and greatest...What a great daughter!
I want my life back too. And, if your Mom ran circles around you, that's how I was as well.
Here's a cheer to us! And, gratitude for loving and wonderful daughters!
I am fortunate to have a daughter as lovely as you....
PS...I can't do it...get paranoid, but there is only one thing that touches neuropathic pain. Marijuana.
I had my body back for 15 minutes before my husband of 32 years and my closest friends were in a conspirasy...LOL!!! Walls running goop. I quit, as a Hippie, when I was 18. Still can't do it, but some can. And, it has definitely helped them.
I was told by one woman to toke small. Didn't work. Just applying wine. Narcotics DO NOT TOUCH neuropathic pain. Will dull your mind to where I was drooling and screaming at the same time. Enough now!
We will get through this!
Love, hope, and courage to us all!
Definitely massage! I slept thru the night for the first time...at FOUR months out after getting a massage!. Right now is the time to help her muscles release. Otherwise, you can be holding onto the pain with 'memory musculature'.
Hope you know massage. Learn fast. Because, if I could have had it 3 times a day...Who knows...
Sweetheart, You're as much of a sweetheart daughter as my own is!
Will let you know how lipoic is working for me. At this hour, I'm almost as bad as your Mom. She has 'The Branding Iron". Sure hope she lets go of 'The Razor Blades'.
I've just got The Iron tonight.
Bless you, your Mom, and Me!
This is very exciting news about alpha-lipoic acid! I just started taking it when I read your message. Would really love hearing how anyone who is taking is doing.
What dosage are you doing?
I'm taking 600mg., seperated into 4 doses a day. I, too, have been a long-term suffer with severe pain. Have tried just about everything. Six and a half years.
