If pain has led you to be "laid up" for an extended period of time, chances are that you may have nerve damage as well as neuropathy. Try the blackseed, silver and gold. I can't see them doing you anything but good.
Another item that is great for neuropathy is pycnogenol. It is widely prescribed in Europe (in some countries it it he number one item for retinal neuropathy associated with diabetes), but not so much in the maimstream med US.
