A peripheral attack may affect a number of locations (see image). If a peripheral attack is painful or prevents you from doing everyday things, then you should consider treating it with your usual medication. It’s important not to ‘wait and see’ to the point that an attack has become painful or already started to prevent you from carrying out day-to-day activities.

So spotting the early signs of a peripheral attack is important and your doctor or nurse will be able to help you with this.

 

You shouldn’t change how you treat peripheral attacks without discussing it with your doctor or nurse first.

Speaking to your doctor or nurse about the way you currently manage your peripheral attacks can help you to identify the best way to treat them and what dose of medication is best for treatment. A selection of educational materials are available in the download section of this site.
