I've tried the medication route for pain relief and am trying the DL-Phenylalanine supplement. Has anyone had any success with this? Thanks for your thoughts!
Here's a brief history:
I've tried just about every drug possible for neuropathic pain. I tapered off seven medications and, now am looking for healthier alternatives to the remaining two, the Fentanyl patch and Oxycontin. I don't foresee giving up pain killers completely to be realistic, but am looking for natural alternatives. I'm avoiding excitotoxins like unbound glutamates and avoiding certain foods identified by an IGg food sensitivity panel. A healthy diet is helping with neuropathic pain. Below is my current vitamin regime. I am noticing a difference and am getting more energy and less pain. On occasion, I take a break from my supplements, and by day 2, I notice it. I also find valerian and passion flower herbal teas to be calming.
