I've been diagnosed with Epilepsy (20 yrs ago). One of my Seizures was violent enuff to displace my spinal cord at C4-C5, so I was forced to have surgery. I wasn't informed that I would need a Titanium Plate, nor did I know that the surgeon secured it & screwed thru C6. 16 months ago I was diagnosed w/Multiple Sclerosis (Frequent Relapsing). Nerve damage & 18 New Brain Lesions is causing a lot of pain. What Medicine will control my pain w/out nausea.
I have had MS since 1974. Most of the pain from mine is from muscle spasms. I anciently found out that low dose ketamine worked for me, you may get different results. when I did 6 45 minute infusion of ketamine of 21 days for depression. I was prescribed 100 mg of ketamine in nasal spray up to 3 times a day for the muscle spasm and to maintain the remission of depression. The nasal spray stops all pain for a half hour or so and it come back over a couple of hours but the muscle spasm may be gone for 2 days.
How ketamine might work for you would depend on what causes your pain. If it's muscle pulling a nerve against a bone you might get a lot of relief. If its something else it may last 30 minutes. Ketamine does make opiates more effective at lower doses, you might get some help there as well.
Opiates are the other route. They don't work well on muscle spasms. They do work well on nerve pain.
