Unfortunately nerve pain is one of those most trying pains to relieve. There just isnt alot of anything that works for everyone. I am sure some folks here will chime in with some things they do to help manage it when it is at its worst but even those will most likely be each to his own.
There does seem to be a rash of new meds coming out often that have potential to assist in helping to alleviate nerve pain to some extent but in saying this alot of folks have some very trying side effects to the point they cant take them at all even short term.
With each new one that presents hope is on the horizon that possibly this will be the one that works without causing all the side effects but for now it is touch and go for most folks and not alot of relief in sight for many.
So sorry I cant help anymore then that and given the bad news I apologize that you have to deal with such pain on a daily basis.
Good luck in your search and hoping someone can give you some things to try at least.
