Re: How to manage the pain while still working?
Well I was prescribed Neurontin and Ultram for the pain. Ultram is the most helpful with the pain, but depending on the dosage it will leave you drowsy. After about 4 days, I didn't feel as drowsy anymore and was able to function.Neurontin is used to treat the neuropathic pain that comes from the nerve damage. This one didn't make me drowsy, but it depends on the person.
A friend recommended arnicare gel (boiron),which is for muscle soreness. The gel felt amazing for my skin.
