Episode 185: A spine-tingling look at neuropathic pain

In episode 185, Mike does a stellar job of reviewing the painfully complex literature around the treatment of neuropathic pain – diabetic neuropathy, post-herpetic neuralgia, trigeminal neuralgia. James as usual just adds to the painful nature of the whole process. In this particular episode we discuss the use of antidepressants and at the end we realize we shouldn’t call these agents antidepressants and decide to call them Kevin.
