[COLOR="Navy"]What you are experiencing is nerve pain. Awful isn't is? You need to ask your doctor to prescribe one of the meds that are designed to treat nerve pain. They were designed for other types of pain, such as seizures, but the very good side effect is that they treat nerve pain quite well. Neurontin, Topomax, Lyrica. THese are three of the ones that are on the market today. The first two are older meds. Lyrica is a newer one and often will need pre-approval by your insurance. More expensive also. They all have their varying side effects. You can do a search and see many threads about them here.

Ask you doc for a script. Normal pain meds won't touch the pain that is caused my nerves as we will all attest to. Good luck and keep us posted...
