This forum has certainly covered all the bases. I suggest that anyone new read all the posts thoroghly. Everyone is different and it may take a lot of trial and error to find the right combination of treatments to find relief. I'm able to function about 85%. The PHN is in a nerve on my neck that goes into my face. Since I can't turn my neck, I can't drive, but I work from home at my computer so I'm luckily satisfed with that. To re-iterate my treatment:
Doxycycletne (Cymbalta) 60mg at bedtime.
Gabapentin 600 mg every three hours that I'm awake.
Zolpidem 10mg at bedtime to aid in sleeping.
Lorazepam 1.5 mg at betime to cut down the electrical shooting pains in the nerve.
It is amazing to me that no research seems to be going on. I've spoken to my neurologist about this and he has no real answer. It doesn't seem to be a topic of interest to any of them. Amazing!
