Pain Research News

Hi Everyone

One of our great Moderators (Mads) on the Living With Erythromelalgia site came up with a great idea that we thought was worth sharing across the board.

I know some of you are not chronically ill, or in chronic pain, but chances are you will know people who are (and sometimes might unfortunate;y be so, yourself - I am). hence, I will always share it.

I trust it helps,


Here is Mads' post:

One of the things I am revisiting is Lidoderm patches on the lumbar at night. These are more lasting for numbing the pain of lying on my back than rubs, creams or sprays!

The Xenon research sounds promising!
