Dear Neuropathic pain
try vit B complex supplements. Trepilene ( an antidepressant), Tegretol ( an anti-epileptic) or sometimes help to "normalize" or suppress the abnormal pain signals. It may or may not get better - if the injury is older than 2 years, not likely.
Most neuropathic pain responds poorly to NSAIDS like Voltaren and opioid analgesics like codeiene. The mainstay of treatment are predominantly the tricyclic antidepressants (TCA's), the anticonvulsants and the systemic local anesthetics. Other pharmacological agents that have proven efficacious include cortisone, topical therapy with capciasin cream ( osteo Eze) , Memantine.
