Chronic pain

Pudendal neuralgia

My friend has chronic pain for much of the day and night. She has as many painkillers as the doctor prescribes. She has had a hysterectomy and two pelvic area operations. None have cured the pain. She can’t return to work, can’t sit down, drive or do anything. It has now been diagnosed as pudendal neuralgia. Pain clinic consultant could not offer her any help and she is very depressed. Does anyone have any experience of this that could give me some advice about how to help her. She is desperate and it is harrowing to see her in this state.

@Fushia123 sorry to hear this about your poor friend. I don’t suffer from it but I do know acupuncture and cbd have both had positive reviews for chronic nerve pain. Also look up scalp acupuncture x

Thank you so much for your advice. I’ve just been reading about scalp acupuncture which I was not familiar with. I’ll pass on these ideas. Thanks again, much appreciated. X
