After a routine blood test, I was left badly bruised and in constant pain that has gone on for three years. I have seen my GP who has confirmed my suspicion that I have a nerve injury.
I was offered anti depressants at 10mg for the pain but I declined them because of the side effects, withdrawal symptoms and the length of time they take to work if they do at all.
I am trying aloe vera gel and Voltarol gel which so far only numbs the pain briefly but I can still feel the pain which radiates up to my shoulder. The injection site is sore to the touch even when the pain is in remission. Nurofen does nothing at all. Heat does work especially in Italy during the summer where I get no pain at all. Damp and wet weather trigger the pain.
Does anyone know what else I can try?
