I have horrible phantom pain & nerve pain. What can I use to help?

"I’m 3.5 months post-operative right hand amputee and I’ve also have had 6 back surgeries with hardware in my spine I need something that’s going to help with this!"

Dr. Edmunds provides an answer to another community member on phantom limb pain. He writes: "Any route of administration may be helpful, including vaporizing, oral/ingestible delivery, and topical application. Vaporizing is fast acting for a shorter duration (1-2 hours) whereas oral/ingestible medications have a longer period of time before onset (up to to 2 hours) and have a longer duration of action (up to 8 hours)."
