Dr. Bennett Machanic answered

Challenging: Have found that these kinds of problems may deteriorate further following additional procedures, and better to try drugs such as Lyrica (pregabalin) or Cymbalta, with physical therapy, and exercise. A medical food called MetanX twice daily may provide benefit over several months. A local nerve block or even a sympathetic block may be tried. Would delay neurectomy.
