They believe I have hyperactive nerves. Basically she said my nerves are in a cycle where I have pain and it just keeps repeating because the nerves swell and cause more pain.
She put me on Gabapentin which is supposed to block the firing of the nerves so they reset the cycle. The meds have to build up in my system so she said I probably will not get any relief until Tuesday. In the meantime I'm take percocet and valuim to help with the pain. That does not seem to help. I am tired but cannot get comfortable enough to sleep.
The Dr is also going to refer me to a pain specialist and a counselor to help me with my stress. The stress seems to increase my pain. At this point I'm willing to try anything.
Thank you all for the responses. It is a relief knowing others are experiencing similar symptoms. I was beginning to fear I was over reacting or being a hypochondriac. OK, I'm going to try to sleep now. Thanks to you all!
