Ischemic Pain


“Dear Dr Yeo, Neuropathic pain in this patient with severe scarring of legs after an accident and skin grafts. This pain will only respond well to appropriate antineuropathic agents and topical agents. Conventional pain killers should be avoided as they do not help the patients but can give side effects.”

Neuropathic Pain


“Dear Dr Yeo, I have been suffering in GREAT PAIN for the past 6 months. The SHARP PAIN started from my back, then it radiated to my right chest wall. The PAIN was really a torture!
