Dothiepin has benefit in management of neuralgia. Can withdrawal of dothiepin cause nerve pain as a withdrawal symptom?

Yes: If this tricyclic antidepressant (TCA) is working for the treatment of your neuralgia, then if you stop taking the medication, it's likely the neuralgia pain will reemerge. Discontinuation after chronic TCA use can lead to Parkinson-like symptoms and balance problems.

Can disc herniations cause symptoms of intercostal neuralgia? 4 in thoracic, 3 in lumbar. Asked pcp and ortho, and they were vague. thanks!

It is possible: Herniated discs in the thoracic region can cause thoracic radiculopathy -- pain that radiates into the chest in the distribution of the nerve from the spine at the level of compression from the disc herniation. This could follow an "intercostal" type pattern.

Having said that, not every bulging or herniated disc will cause symptoms. ...Read more

Are the symptoms of post herpetic neuralgia bad?

YES!: Antivirals, like valtrex, (valacyclovir) need to be started within 72 hrs of shingle symptoms. They can decrease the severity and duration of the rash. If pain persists after the rash is gone - postherpetic neuralgia (phn) - it needs to be treated aggressively so it does not last forever. The older you are when you have shingles, the more likely you are to have phn. See a board certified pain specialist for help. ...Read more
