Aunt Kay, sure hate to hear hubby is having this on top of everything else. Whew!! The others are so right, yes there is medications for nerve pain, your dr is not up on things. Another drug they are successfull with is Lyrica. I have non diabetic neuropathy in both my feet and hands and Lyrica has really helped with that. Perhaps your PCPC will help with this if the dr seeing him now refuses to.
