nerualgia

Posted by muchachita on July 25, 2003 at 13:51:34:

I was recently diagnosed with intercostal neuritis/neuralgia. They have not been able to pinpoint any clear cause. I have had x-rays and nothing was found. I am on anti-inflammatories, which are helping somewhat, but I wonder if there is anything else I could be doing to get rid of this. Some days I am in extreme pain. Thanks.

Hi,

I don't know if this is the same kind of neuralgia, but my mother had terrible trigeminal neuralgia for years. The pain in her face was excrutiating. After many visits to the doc she went in desperation to a chinese acupuncturist. He sorted her out. He told her he could not cure her, but he could make it so she was OK. Which he did. That man was a marvel.

Hi, Muchachita.

The common name for this is costochondritis--a totally unnecessary condition.

Start with the bracing archives and then go to the costo archives and let us know what you learn.

In my opinion, docs make up these fancy names to impress and confuse their patients.
