Hey all. I know what I am experiencing is nerve related pain. I was on tramadol after surgery, but was such a low dose compared to the 6 months prior to surgery, didn't seem to be doing much so Dr. switched me to Valtran (tilidin) and the nerve related pain i was having, which originally started as itching, then went to a feeling of bugs crawling and has not gone to a burning sensation became intolerable and i spent most of the night last night in tears because of the pain. I took 10Mg valium just to get me through the night, but that barely worked either.
I'm just wondering of anyone has experienced this sort of pain in the same area and what seemed to work for them? I've read that anti-depressants sometimes work for this type of pain.
The pain itself, seems to be expanding in area. Originally it was just a small spot, now it's going all the way from the top of my foot and heading up towards my knee and now on both sides of my leg.
Anyway - thanks in advance for anyone who can provide any insight to their similar experiences and what helped.
