So I have nerve pain. Dr thinks my gluteis minimus muscle is compressing the nerve for some reason. Treatment for now is valium 5mg 3 x a day. So now I sleep all day. Thank goodness I have help. Any other suggestions for nerve pain? I have narcotics, but they do nothing so I don't take them. Not sure if valium helps but at least I sleep through it. Cant do that all the time though.
