    Default Nerve blockers

    My ENT suggested seeing a pain specialist about nerve blockers. Has anyone tried this?

    Why do you need a block? I have tried it. It simply blocks the pain, but does nothing for improvement of damage. Unless it's debilitating, I'd look to therapy to improve the situation. If you have WG or similar, why would one want more drugs unless it's unbearable. Be careful in your choices of blockers too, some can knock one for a loop and others are simply numbing. Best to you.

    I still don't have a diagnosis, and I gave to wait another month to see a specialist at UCSF. I'm just looking for a way to manage until then.

    I was given Endep for pain management for sciatic nerve damage, works well.

    I'm on Gabapentin. Seems to work real well. I've been on it and tramadol (or hydrocodone) for a very long time.

    Who perscribed them? Do I need to go to a pain specialist? I feel like I'm just going round in circles? I'm not sure I can stand this for a month until I see the specialist at UCSF.

    My GP prescribed mine, originally 25 mg evening only; but now I take 10 mg morning and 25 mg at night.

    Pcp rx'ed them. I'm on 100mg/3xday and 100mg/3xday tramadol. I can swap hydrocone for tramadaol if bad day.

    I need to do something I can't stand the pain past 6pm everyday. I just don't know how to ask. Maybe I'll try going back to my pcp, or going to the pain specialist. I just know I can't do this everyday for a month until I see the next specialist.

    Im so sorry your stuck in this phase of the unknown. I think i would be pushy about that appointment your waiting for. Call them and keep asking for a cancelation spot....if you have wg-and it sounds all to familiar-this desease is very unpredictable. jumps around alot for me. i have had severe joint pain...i think i just posted on another thread you started. Anyway i no ur probly gonna roll ur eyes because it SOUNDS like baby meds, but aleve is naproxen and u can get that in perscription strength thru ur doc. but if my pain is bad and im out or its the weekend ive already just bought aleve and taken 3 or 4 at a time. my doc is ok with that if its not long periods of time. its for the inflammation which is whats causing your joint pain. it might make you sick in the stomach...id eat something. i guess i shouldnt try and perscribe anything since im not a doc...but this makes the pain tolerable for me. dont give up ! there are answers. I hope you get them at this next app. is it a ruemotolagist ?
