Is there a new drug for nerve pain called Nupenta or Numenta?

Is there a new drug for nerve pain called Nupenta or Numenta? I have osteoarthritis with calcium deposits in the cervical area. The orthopedist says he cannot help - referred me to a pain center. Facet injections have not relieved the pain. I am taking Neurontin, Robaxin, Plaquinil and Norco. The drugs impair my ability to function with brain/memory fog and unsteady walking. Is there a drug called Numenta or Nupenta that is currently being prescribed for neck pain. What are the chances that nerve ablation will help me and relieve the chronic pain and stiffness?

I spoke with my Dr about this drug, Nucynta, and he prescribed it since many other drugs were not alleviating the pain. It is chemiclly related to Ultram (Tramadol).
Thanks for your input.

What is the reason for your nerve pain ? Ask your doctor for a perfect diagnosis & get the cause treated.
Don't try new drugs. I prefer old and time proven drugs.
