Now, a few months later, I'm not sure if the burn is responsible. My hands started having neuropathy as well, so that would rule out the burn. But I've ruled out so much of everything else. My guess is that my trauma just made everything that could go wrong with my body to do so. Yeah, they gave me a ton of meds, but I'm not sure if I was on any that could have made this worse. I did have a bad reaction to Flagyl, which is on that list of possible causes, but I didn't take it for more than a few days.
The PTSD and healing that our bodies have gone through is bad enough, why does everything else have to break down? I know my thyroid is low because of the burn (go get yours checked, my Endo says it happens a few months after trauma).
Nobody has been able to give me an actual answer about what is causing this. I am currently taking an alternative to Gabapentin, it's Oxcarbazepine. Still having nerve pain, but I can't take more meds or I'll sleep all day. Waiting for an EMG for my hands. I think my Neuro is dismissing my issues as not a big deal. Going to see a different doc for the EMG. Many symptoms are pointing to hereditary. Did the burn bring it out? My guess yes.
