Hello,

I would recommend taking Pregabalin for the pain. Another treatment option would be Duloxetine. You should discuss with your doctor on the above treatment options.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
