I have what was diagnosed and I think actually may be central nerve pain in both feet and sometimes legs. Mostly went away on its own after three or four years but still can flare up.
Anyway, the only thing I found that helps with it without side effects seemed to be Baclofen (other than sleep).
But of course Baclofen isn't supposed to help with nerve pain and the doctors get very skeptical when I say it does. Especially when I say I take it PRN which they think is ridiculous but since it's safe and non-addicting they don't really object but I can tell they are skeptical.
Could all the crazy things in my spinal cord (a bunch of long Latin/Greek words, you name it I have it) somehow make Baclofen work with nerve pain? Like could whatever the Baclofen fixes, could it somehow because of all the rewiring in the cord be wired to the pain receptors so taking Baclofen helps pain? Or could the pain actually be due to spasticity that noone knew? Or maybe it's just psychological. Has anyone heard of this working?
