Dealing with neuropathy and varying degrees of pain can be very difficult, especially if you are having trouble managing your pain. The treatment of neuropathy and the resulting symptoms may be different for everyone, but there are some simple ways that may alleviate the pain you are experiencing because of neuropathy:
- Pain medications are often used to help individuals control and manage nerve pain associated with neuropathy. Depending on your situation, there may be other prescription medications that can aid in controlling pain, including some antidepressants and some anti-epileptic medications. As with all prescription medications, it is important to work with your doctor to determine the best solution for you.
- Many different therapies are also helpful in managing neuropathic pain. For example, physical therapy, massage, acupuncture, and others can help with pain, depending on the location and severity. These activities are often combined with medications to create the best possible treatment plan and positive results.
- Prevention of further accidents in your home is also key to managing current pain and avoiding greater pain in the future. If the pain you experience makes it difficult to walk occasionally or you are likely to slip in the shower and other locations, take the time to make sure you have hand railings and clear areas to walk in your home.
