I have severe nerve pain in my feet and have to take pregabalin to help with sleep etc. The garbage is that this is supposed to be damage to the nerves that cannot be cured and/or damage to the capillaries. You may remember as a child that stopping blood flow to the feet caused pins and needles. The nerves were providing a warning that you needed to change your sitting position. In fact the main purpose of the nerves was originally to provide warnings of danger. Pregabalin may help the pain but it does not treat the cause - so typical of drug companies to treat symptoms as this keeps the money rolling in! I even get more discomfort when there is a quick increase in air pressure. The nerves responding to increased pressure. Does anyone know of a treatment that will help improve the blood flow except for high blood pressure tablets which did help a couple of years ago?
