I am new to forum. I have neuropathic pain in my feet and now part of leg. Occurred post cortisone injections pre surgery to treat ligament damage caused by an accident. Unable to have surgery now due to pain condition.
To date have tried Topiramate, lidocaine patches, pregabalin, amitriptyline, codeine, tramadol and celicoxib as anti inflammatory. Currently taking duloxetine, 60mg of codeine 4 times a day, lidocaine and celicoxib.
Was discharged by hospital pain team after a very upsetting appt where was not even asked about my symptoms and told there was nothing else that could be done. I am still relatively young and rapidly losing faith in medical profession.
Any ideas what I can do. I am still only able to work part time, cannot stand/walk for long periods and average 3-4 hours sleep at night if I am lucky-sometimes I go to work on no sleep. Any suggestions re what I can do treatment wise and anything to help manage pain at night. Not mad keen to try gabapentin as heard it can make you really drowsy which would not be great for my work. Tramadol did nothing.
Many thanks in advance for any ideas.
