Hi I'm karen..really suffering at the minute, I have a trapped nerve in the middle of my back with the pain radiating around my rib cage and trapped nerve in lower back that radiates down my hip and outer thigh..really sensitive to touch so even the slightist touch is painfull. Taking dihydrocodeine and gabapentin for the pain but still in agony..any advice on how to ease the pain will be very appreciated.x

Auh you soul nerve pain is terribly painful, try other analgesia other than DF118 speak to your GP , maybe up the dose of Gabapentin ? Unfortunately how pain mess affect each person is individualised you'll need to find what works for you , sorry not to be much help hope you find resolution soon

If pain meds aren't dealing with it, ask if you can be referred to a neurosurgeon to be assessed to see if they can do something like nerve ablation (where they burn off the offending nerve roots)
