Thank you for posting your query.

I can understand the discomfort you face on account of pain and tinnitus.

Since you already had the ganglion block with temporary relief, as of now, you should start neuropathic pain medications.

Medicines that are likely to be helpful for you are pregabalin, gabapentin and carbamazepine.

If your pain is episodic (coming intermittently, lasting for few seconds), then carbamazepine would be the best drug to start. Otherwise, if the pain is constant, pregabalin or gabapentin would be the better choice.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Wishing you good health,
