Forgot to mention that I have also taken Neurontin and Lyrica and they didn't help either.
Has your PM doc tried nerve blocks to the affective nerves. What area of your body is hurting or going numb? I have been dealing with nerve pain, so far the best combo I've been able to come up with is ms contin, IR morphine, gabapentin or Neurontin and Robaxin 750. I found it took a while to get the full effect of gabapentin, its not a cure, but my pain is manageable. Really hope you find a solution to your pain issues.
Pamee, Balbanese mentioned SSRI's and I was told Elavil, aka amitriptyline, is one that helps with nerve pain. Another alternative might be accupuncture. I know you may be feeling kinda hopeless and in pain right now, try to fight this. Amitriptyline has helped me with partial paresthesia I got from a dental shot. Nothing works overnight unfortunately. Hope y a get some relief soon. Patti
