Hi, Cak. I understand that acupuncture does help with that type of nerve pain. I've been having sciatic nerve pain and have done a lot of reading about it and acupuncture has been mentioned several times as a source of help. I hope it helps you, too.
I don't know much about Gabapentin but I'm sure someone will chime in soon about this med.
I'm surprised that no mention of surgery was said. I'm certainly not one to have surgery but certain types of neck injuries can cause huge problems if not taken care of. You might want to get a second...and third....opinion, just to make sure. I hope we have some members that have this problem and can give you better advice than I can.
