Hello, I suffered a stroke 18 months ago and was left unable to walk. After 2 months in hospital I was able to walk for short periods but have suffered from terrible nerve pain in my entire left side. My left leg also feels like it is burning hot but the skin is cool.
I am taking gabapentine for the pain and codine but doesn’t really help.
The doctor said it’s the nerves making new connections and I am sure he is right but I am finding it increasingly hard to live with.
I am taking antidepressants as I feel down so much and the fatigue is hard to cope with. Sorry to sound like I am moaning but after 18 months it’s difficult to be positive.
Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
