Hi Esma, I take pregabalin which manages the nerve pain really well, other than I don't take anything for the muscle pain. My pain pharmacist suggested I don't take anything more as I want to stay focused in my job!

There are other things other than medication I do find very beneficial, that's Tiger Balm and tai chi.

Hope that helps, take care
