debilitating pain especially in the morning.
I had pain for three years and everything pain brings. A year ago or year and half ago my doctor realized injections were only lasting a few weeks and talked to me about a pain pump. I decided to go for it. First came the trial to see how my body accepted the meds. It was good. Then Covid hit so it was put off until this February. I'm thrilled with the pain in my lower back, hips and thighs is gone. Before this, all I had was Salon Pas with lidocaine. Great stuff! I used the patches and the gel plus I had Tramadol and a muscle relaxer. I also used CBD oil. An army of medicine! As of today, I take Tramadol and salon Pas for my neck. I'm doing neck exercises and stretching which keeps me almost pain free. I'm grateful for my high tolerance to pain.Usually if I have pain, everyone knows I'm not whining.
Gabaoentine did not help with my nerve pain. Be aware that this medication causes no permanent cognitive delays like having difficulty with word retrieval.
