hey i went looking for migraine nutrition info which i'm sure as sufferers you've seen before, but i may as well post it in case of use to others.
and i ran into a hint of something that i was trying to remember about nutrition for symptoms on one or the other side of the body. very interesting.
i'm guessing that stuff you use to treat pain on one side of the head might feasibly affect other symptoms of neuropathy on the opposite side of the body? because of the crossover? "Sensory and motor nerve fibers connecting the brain and the rest of the body cross over to the opposite side as they pass through the medulla"

One can either use trial and error to determine what group applies for a specific individual, or previous experience with for instance caffeine-containing beverages might be of help --- of whatever effect they
had in improving or worsening one's headache.
it's a bit of a squirrelly read if you go through to the link, with no citations, but i think one could find a fair amount of support for the assertions on pubmed.[/quote]
