Foods cause harm to the PN?

Postby Linds_1989 » Mon Jan 01, 2018 2:09 am

Just wondering bc I saw someone mention it on facebook, but does sugar or carbs harm on or cause the nerves further harm? Like I no pure cane sugar is inflammatory. I avoid it 99.9 % of the time. But in general does honey, other things that are natural sugars or carbs cause further harm to the PN itself?

That's a good suggestion. It would explain why so many people have PN much worse than others.
I will tell you that weight gain definitely makes the nerve damage worse. I know this from experience! It's all about the gravity...
Pain began 2007, surgery 2008 - Dr. Ansell in Houston, TX, severely damaged nerves on both sides and entrapment areas
No relief from surgery, possible PN years before pain began
PN most likely due to extreme exercise
SCS - 95% pain relief, removed due to multiple infections
Accupuncture - no relief
Botox - relief only 2 of 3 months of injection
RF Ablation - no relief
Current: Butrans Transdermal patches, compound cream, other usual PN meds
Pain relief typically 60-70% with new meds
