hello & welcome to the forum. Unfortunately, this forum is very slow because we do not have a moderator to help keep things moving. Some of us try to pitch in when we can & answer a post.

My thoughts are is to talk to the dr about all of the difficulty you are having with the pain. I see you take Gabapentin which I am assuming it is for nerve pain. Depending on the dosage you are currently on, is there room for an increase? Or perhaps the dr can try you on a different medication in that class. The bad news is, narcotics have little effect on nerve pain which may be another factor as to why you are having such pain.

I would make a list of questions & discuss each one with the dr & get my answers. Drs tend to be in a rush when we see them. I have found writing things down helps much more than trying to remember what I want t discuss.

I am sorry that you are not quite getting what you need. Perhaps getting some new drs in the picture may be something to consider.

Take care.
