I am a researcher interested in SCI pain. Recently talked to a woman with paraplegia who is a trained nutritionist. She eliminated grain, sugar and most milk products from her diet with substantial elimination of neuropathic pain. She notes that when she "cheats" and eats a sandwich, NP pain ramps up again.

Has anyone noted a relationship between NP pain and diet?

Thanks,
