Thank you for your kind and helpful information corky1969. I am presently taking Lyrica which is horrendously expensive but seems to help even nerve pain at this point. I will look into Neurotin as well. Thank you and God bless that you are not suffering.
No, I have not heard of Plaquenil actually either. I am on Syrequel for the depression of pain and the pain itself in my muscles, joints and especially the nerve pain I endure. Also, Tylenol 3 with Codeine helps too with the Syrequel.
I swim everyday at the YWCA and that helps but only for a while of course. The hot tub really helps when it is super hot. It literally kills all pain out of my body for a few hours. The only other thing I have tried to do that works is a massage. It calms everything down and it lasts for at least a week or two. Unfortunatley, I pay out of pocket and a massage costs for me, $100.00 per hour. I have graduated where I need one and a half hours.
A massage is really worth it when I can scrape the money together.
The one thing that irritates me to no end and that is people touching me, poking at me without my permission. I hate being touched at all now as my nerve pain is so sensitive. Does anyone you know have nerve pain Trudie? It is awful.
I don't mind loved ones touching me to help me feel better. It is strangers and/or acquaintances that touch me very hard like...they always poke my shoulders and back. I freak.
Thank you very much Trudi and Corky too for the information. Hope you will be well too. God bless you both and all pain suffers...there must be a cure somewhere.
