: : We have dealt w/ thalamic pain for 6 years w/ my mom. It is very rare, it's almost constant chronic pain, and treatment is per individual. There may be some trials and studies that can help you. Ask the doctor about Neurotin, as this is prescribed a lot for this type stroke. We use Vistaril injectable and morphine gel. Some have sought help w/ electrode stimulation, but we were not candidates. There is a doctor in New Orleans who does this now, (FDA approval last year)
we also use vistaril capsules for pain. More meds also, but these seem to help some.
