I am 38 year old women and Had shingles on my left arm Last year. I have excruciating pain in my hand, thumb & 1st finger. I have tried gabapetin (max dose)with tramadol and paracetamol for 3 months but still no relief. I am now taking tramadol & paracetamol & ibruprofen with pregabalin & sertaline (antidepressant) for 4 months but I am still in so much pain. It has consumed my life and feel it's never ending..
I have paid to see a pain management consultant because it's a 12 month waiting list onNHS. They say it's AHN and want to change pregablin to carbamazepine & antidepressants to amtriptaline. I am so confused drowsy and in pain.. please can anyone help!
I have a 1 year old baby and full time job, I am struggling to cope. Pain is too much..
