Need suggestions to cure neuralgia

I have just come from an eye clinic after symptoms of intense, sharp stabbing pain in left eye. I was diagnosed with a type of neuralgia or neuritis which the doctor suggested comes from the nerve at base of skull and travels up to sinuses and into the eye. I have had some neck pain in the past which pinched nerves on both sides of neck and I did have some of that a few weeks ago so perhaps this eye pain was brought on by that. He has referred me to see a neurologist. I am already on gabapentin for sciatica back/leg pain. Any thoughts, suggestions?
