    Hopefully, Iskewed the results as any sci still smoking, especially respiratory compromised, must be mentally compromised.
    But, who am I to judge, we all do what we have to get thru our days.
    what the hell was that about? F you buddy.

    I smoke about a half a pack a day and it doesn't do anything for my pain, good or bad.

    The poll suggests that about 44% of people find that nicotine increases their neuropathic pain. Wise.

    and that number is probably low because it does not include people that either have not smoked, or people that haven't stopped. I think the numbers would be higher still if you only included people with existing neuropathic pain.

Has anyone found anything that seems to alter this reaction to one degree or another?
