Default New Diagnosed SFN with Full Body Allodynia Help!!!!

I have been struggling with neuropathy since March due to nerve impingement in my ankle. In late July out of no where 20 minutes after taking a shower was in so much pain like I had been pelted with rocks. I was in so much pain and anything that touched my body caused more pain. Finally talked to the DR. via phone mid Aug. He said I have SFN with Allodynia and prescribed gabapentin until I was It has helped some but if I take a shower or bath I'm still in pain. If certain clothes and the bed sheets still hurt. Takes a week or more to calm down

What have worked for you for pain, clothes, bathing, etc.? Any advise welcomed.

From what you wrote, you might want to explore our RSD/CRPS forum also, just to compare. To be sure you have the correct diagnosis and best care..

many years ago there was a lady that had RSD/nerve (mis)diagnosis for her ankle and it was eventually fixed by a chiropractor, an impinged nerve...

Hi, I have this on and on too. I have not found a lot that helps 100% but I do use aspercream [roll on] with lidocaine and this helps me somewhat.

I purchased some a few days ago it helped. Do you use it daily?

I use it when ever i get a flare, mine usually comes and goes especially if i get stressed for some reason it will bring it on. At first when it started i was using it daily but it has calmed down a bit so i don't have to do a dailly application. They also have some that comes in a little bottle that comes out in a lotion type of application [also aspercream/lidocain] i use it that way too if i have an area on my skin i want to cover a little bit heavier. I am glad it helps you a little. Also after using it a few times on the same part of the body i have also found that making sure you clean the older stuff off before you put the new stuff on helps penetrate the skin better.

FWIW. My doctor say to be careful with using too much Lidocaine as it can adversely effect the heart rhythms.
