In brief: Meds

Couple of good medications available to include lyrica, (pregabalin) cymbalta, neurontin.
Also would take vitamin b6 and b12.

In brief: Tough situation

These are hard to treat.
Depending on the evaluation there are some medications that might help, but remember that there are not fda approved medications for this indication. In medicine when we try to help our patients we are often blocked by insurance companies who are there to manage money and manage your health. Thus some medications on the market will not be paid for to help you.
