    Dont think it has anything to do with it . It helps relax me when I am tense , therefor no pain .

      but when i did quit smoking for 6 months right after injury. when i did start back smoking ocassionally, my legs an feet would burn more. now i smoke regularly so i can't tell if it worsens things or not.

        The only time it ever increased my pain was when the red hot end fell off onto my lap!

        PS If you're wearing white chinos and a cigarette falls into your lap don't use red wine to put it out.

          Cigarettes? Great sci tool. I voted that my pain is less

          after smoking, and I don't even smoke. How about that?
          Hopefully, I skewed the results as any sci still smoking, especially respiratory compromised, must be mentally compromised.
          But, who am I to judge, we all do what we have to get thru our days.

            I stuffed my lip full of Copenhagen when I was hanging out with some Marines from my unit the other day. It was the first time I dipped "smokeless" tobacco since my accident. My sensory levels below my injury became heightened. It wasn't painful, as I have no neuro pain, but everything became more sensitive. It was a pleasant surprise.

              what the hell was that about? F you buddy.

              I smoke about a half a pack a day and it doesn't do anything for my pain, good or bad.

                The poll suggests that about 44% of people find that nicotine increases their neuropathic pain. Wise.

                  and that number is probably low because it does not include people that either have not smoked, or people that haven't stopped. I think the numbers would be higher still if you only included people with existing neuropathic pain.

These seem like very plausible answers and I had ideas that it may be something like that but did not know the details and terminology that went with it, I really appreciate it. The burning is in my legs and hands by the way. I am wondering if there is some kind of preventive measure to stop the stinging brought on by smoking before it happens besides not smoke ha,ha. Has anyone found anything that seems to alter this reaction to one degree or another?
