Ihave, for the past four months, suffered chronic neck, shoulder, tricep,lower arm, outer thigh & outer calf ache. sometimes the pain is so severe that I am unable to sleep. the pain pattern is haphazard and a recent MRI scan of my spine showed no particular abnormalities for my age (56).
I had a mild whip-lash injury 5 years ago and had a very nasty wisdom tooth extraction (left side!) just prior to that. 3 months later a developed a facial itch just below my left nostril which comes & goes at will. It has driven me mad in the past but following a course of Neurontin has been hardly troublesome.
Sinus scans have also proved negative & I am at my wit’s end to know what to do next.
Strong ant-inflammatories are not particularly helpful and I do not care for some of the side-effects. I have tried physiotherapy combined with acupuncture but relief is only transitory and sometimes it makes the symptoms worse. My right side is completely problem-free. Any suggestions please?
