Thank you for posting your query.

It is unfortunate that you are suffering from pain and symptoms due to nerve involvement, without much relief.

As of now, you can benefit from gabapentin or pregabalin capsules, which are very good medications to improve the nerve related discomfort.

In addition, supplements of nerve vitamins such as vitamin 12, pyridoxine, thiamine, etc would also help.

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

Best wishes,
