Re: Pn pain driving me crazy !!!!
Hi Ivp714 - I am so sorry to hear of your pain and diminished quality of life. I don't have a magic wand to wave, but do suggest you see a pain managment doctor as there are so many meds and med combos that can help with neuropathic pain. I haven't heard of Zonergran, but I did notice you didn't mention taking either Cymbalta or a tricylic antidepessant. These can help a lot for neuropathic pain (unrelated to depression). Perhaps starting the Zonergran contributed to your sense of starting to lose it. It may not be the right med for you, and I would check out any med thoroughly on the web. Do search out a pain doctor or neurologist who is knowledgable and will take the time to work with you to find pain relief. Also there is something called a TENS unit that some people find as a better alternative to taking drugs for the pain. At our neuropathy support group meetings, we begin each meeting with about 5 minutes of silent breathing meditation, and several of our members report using this technique at home, especially at night, to relieve pain. Wish I could help more. Hugs to you, Ruby
