Neurontin/ lyrica (pregabalin): There is no treatment, but palliation is availbale with lyrica (pregabalin) or neurontin It won't make it go away but will take the edge off in many patients. When they think that it isn't working they will stop, but usually decide to stay on it for the modest relief Many patients feel they prefer not to treat it.
