Suggest medication for neuropathic pain
amitriptyline, nortriptyline can be considered
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
Neuropathic pain (nerve related pain ) can be treated with anti depressants and anti seizure medications.
Though these medications were originally intended for persons with depression/anxiety or seizures , they have been found to be useful in persons with NO depression/anxiety or seizure disorder.
These meds are very very commonly used for nerve pain. Eg of such medication include amitriptyline, nortriptyline, cymbalta, venlafaxine, lyrica, gabapentin, tegretol
You may want to consider starting with amitriptyline or nortriptyline though any of the others may be effective for you.
Any medications would have to be crosschecked with other medications to make sure there is no interaction.
Can be combined with other painkillers in some instances for maximum effect.
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
may need procedure, physio
These are the main meds used along with other strictly pain medication.
If the typical oral medications are not working on their own for you other methods may need to be suggested by your doctor.
Physio techniques to increase strength and flexibility( like hot/cold , massage, traction, strengthening, ultrasound therapy and TENS) may be helpful.
Nerve blocks , spinal cord stimulation are procedures that may need to be considered if your pain is not responding.
Please feel free to ask anything else
