Think beyond drugs: Medications are one way of controlling nerve pain. Pain is a complex holistic process. You may be able to decrease need for meds by addressing other issues. That includes nutrient status, stress or emotional trauma that may have accompanied or pre-dated the injury, and movement and use of the limb. It's a complex topic. You might look for a doc who does integrative or functional medicine.

Fibromyalgia: Certainly the diagnosis may not be correct. Make sure you have had a Rheumatology work -up. Also it may be that the meds are just not working on you.
