Hi from Portland, Oregon.
I just want to second Dmcff, and suggest the gabapentin. I take 300 mg TID and it's helped me to be more functional. I'm still uncomfortable, but I sleep through the night and can do most things. I also take 25 mg of Trazodone every night to sleep because if I don't get enough sleep, I start feeling super insane and can't tolerate the pain as well. I'm so sorry you are dealing with this bs. This sort of medical condition takes a terrible toll on our mental health :blowup:
