I suffered severe damage to the common Peroneal nerve. My foot and ankle feel as if 4 million bullet ants with red hot ice picks are crawling all over the place. It's a miserable pain 24/7 with the only relief coming from 40 mg of Methadone every 6 hours. The cold always has a negative effect and I hate it when anything touches my foot or ankle unless I have prepared for the contact.
I have tried every med from non-opiates, to opiates, SCS, Peripheral nerve stimulators, Lyrica, Cymbalta, etc. etc. etc. with no luck whatsoever.
The only things I have tried that worked was Accupuncture and Brytillium blocks, but Brytillium blocks proved so dangerous to the heart that they had to be stopped. I tried Methadone about 5 years ago and was finally able to recover some quality back in my life.
I wish I could provide you with a list of meds and/or treatments that ease the pain of nerve damage but I cannot. In my case 2/3rds of the nerve were carved away leaving me with a life of pain and a very, very short list of things that provide any relief whatsover.
