I have been suffering from skin stinging across my abdomen like a jelly fish sting - really painful, for a couple of weeks and my GP thought shingles. but it has continued and i have horrendous mid back pain (just under my rib cage) My GP thinks it could be a herniated T7 disc. so he sent me for an xray- (see him wed 19 for results). He strted me on Gabapentin which has really helped and oxynorm and diazepam for the pain - these reduce the pain but do not take it away and on Saturday it was really severe. (Pain scale 1 to 10 = mine was 15, i was screaming with the pain)
I was wondering if anyone else has experience of this and could enlighten me,. Anything that would help would be welcomed. thanks in anticipation.
