Currently on nortriptyline but it has been making me have nightmares and hasn't been helping with my nerve pain. Can I just stop taking it?

Discuss with your Dr

You should not stop it abruptly, but do make the call to your doctor and put them on the same page and they can assist you getting off the medicine.

Neuropathic pain

Neuralgia
The symptoms are quite suggestive of Peripheral neuropathy. This can be seen in multiple medical conditions such as Diabetes, thyroid disease, B-12 Deficiency and many other disorders. You need to talk with your doctor and he can do simple blood tests to find the answer and you may need electromyography/ nerve conduction study.

Is there anyways to make nerve pain less painful, i had a bilateral release almost 2 yrs ago and still getting it, im not a diabetic,?

Pain specialist

Nerve
For any type of nerve pain, you may consider consultation with a pain specialist. They are particularly good at working with medications for chronic pain. There are medications like lyrica or neurontin which may help with nerve pain from nerve irritation.

Sharp swollen nerve pain on top of knee when bumped. Ice helps. calms down in a few days until bumped again. Very localized and very painful!

Could be bursitis

Knee_pain
Could have some bursitis that is aggravated with bumping that may respond well to anti-inflammatories. If it does not then seeing a physician and getting x-ray and possibly MRI evaluation is the next step.

18 weeks pregnant with siatica nerve pain on left side. its gotten worse to a point where it stops me in my tracks. very painful!! is this normal?

Pregnant sciatica

Pregnancy
Sciatic pain in pregnancy can be crippling. You can use a heating pad to your buttock or soak in a warm bath. Physical therapy can sometimes help. Some women also get relief from a pregnancy support belt.

Dr. Qamar Khan answered:

Hurt my L shoulder 3/7. Pain was instant but now have a painful nerve pain going down my arm (ulnar side) going into my pinkie finger is this urgent?

Evaluate Neck

Cervical_spine
If you are not improving have your doctor order a cervical spine MRI. Many times a herniated disc in the neck can cause arm pain especially if you have not improved with the medications and physical therapy. If it is a herniated disc you may need evaluation from a spine specialist to determine what other options might be needed (injections, surgery, etc) to help reduce pain.

You might experience some nerve pain. It might due to nerve entrapment or symptoms of complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS). I recommend you see a pain specialist for evaluation

Dr. Robert Kent answered:

I have a nerve pain headache in the back of my head, on theleft side but it is not horribly painful. I had a CT scan a weekago and it was clean. I have a history of syrinx. I have anappointment with the neurologist tomorrow. What can causethis?

Occipital neuralgia

Head
You may have occipital neuralgia. Its hard to tell without more history and physical exam, but sharp shooting pains starting at the base of your skull that radiates up one side of your head can certainly be related to that. However, with the syrinx history I am certainly glad you are seeing your neurologist just to be safe. diagnostic nerve block can tell you if it's occipital neuralgia.Good luck!
