Brief Answer:Nerve root
block may help; do not lose hope
Thanks for posting
I have gone through your query and understand your concern. My suggestion for you are-1.Inspite of gabapentin(Neurotin) you may have pregablin as it has less side effect and more effective along with short course of cortisone
2. You may wear soft cervical collar
for the time being.
3. Nerve root /facetal joint block with drugs such as lidocaine/sensorcaine
will be therapeutic as well as diagnostic role.
You may discuss about these possibilities with your treating doctor.
I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
