Sleep

Here's an interesting abstract on the increase of inflammatory markers due to loss of sleep via sleep interruption. This research seems to correlate with my own experience as the neuropathic pain I experience is typically worse when I'm short on sleep yet it hardly bothers me first thing in the morning before I get up (it's also worse when I'm stressed, the last time I moved it felt like nearly my whole leg was wrapped ...

Numerous supplements

Although the following info came in a commercial publication selling supplements, it may have real substance to it (tho I have not checked the references).

acupunture?

Has anyone tried acupunture? Did you feel that it helped in alleviating symptoms? How long was it before you felt any positive effects? I've been doing it for a couple of months (with a very well thought of dr of TCM) and honestly cannot say that it has made any difference-- at this point I'm quite discouraged and feeling that I'm throwing my money away. And (very late at night) sometimes thinking that here is ...
