I have small nerve fiber damage in my hands, wrists, and forearms along with Raynaud's syndrome. I was on 300mg neurontin at night and 60mg of morphine. It covered the pain only enough to survive my day--it still hurt to wash a dish, fold a shirt, etc. and my hands/etc. were swollen, red, stinging, aching, cutting glass etc. (Misdiagnosed with chronic tendinitis for 4 years by Kaiser P). Got new ins. + Pain Management. I asked for "Lyrica" because I'd heard some good things about it. I was also put on put on a calcium channel blocker to open my blood vessels and Cymbalta which for depression/anxiety + it has pain blocking properties. The Lyrica (it's a cousin to neurontin) made a HUGE difference. It felt like a nice soft glove covering my nerve endings. I go to a warm pool to get my blood flowing every morning which is also critical to my pain management. I have been able to get off of the morphine and some powerful anti-inflammatories. You might want to give some of these things a try if your insurance will cover it and visit your local pool for some self induced physical therapy. Like I said, it's worked wonders for Me!
