    Default Lyrica for burning

    Has anyone here had any success with reducing the burning sensation using Lyrica?

    Tried it, but didn't help at all for me. Now I'm using remeron which helps.

    Red light therapy can help with burning sensations and stinging/discomfort.

    Feel free to PM me or post if you have any questions.

    I just started red light therapy a few days ago. I'm hoping it helps. The burning is the most debilitating symptom for me.

    I take propranolol. Is there a difference between the two? Propranolol never helped much with burning, it did help a bit with flushing though/

    I had stinging/burning and severely dry skin before I figured out my dietary triggers. Aveeno Skin Relief Healing Ointment helped it a lot. It has colloidal oatmeal that took away the sting and it lasted all day. Thick stuff though like petroleum jelly.

    For me Lyrica (and neurontin) seemed to make my flushing and skin redness worse.. so also the burning sensation, paradoxically enough. Anti flushing medication helped me most with cutting down the burning. Paler face is no more burning pain for me. I also tried NSAID's like diclofenac for the burning, and antidepressants like amitriptyline, also didn't help my burning.

    I know of some severe flushers here who can curb their burning pain with medication that are in the opiate class, but those are quite serious.

    Hope this helps :/
