• Ulnar Nerve Pain

    I severed my left ulnar nerve at the elbow. I was a walking when struck from the rear by a vehicle. My left arm elbow went thru the windshield. Major tissue damage, blood loss, shock, and emergency surgery to save my arm. The ulnar nerve was reconnected but not functional. Scale 5 pain 24/7 and spikes of scale 8-9 lasting weaks. Nothing helps with pain caused by a nerve! Suggestions?

    RE: Ulnar Nerve Pain

    The only nerve pain med I know is Gabapentin/Neurontin. It takes 3 weeks to begin to help. I don't know how much it will help you while your nerves are healing. I had a large, bone deep wound in my leg that did not hurt until the nerves began healing, then bad pain. Neurontin di finally alleviate some of my pain, along with a low dose of Norco for a couple of weeks. It does take a long time for nerves to heal. I hope you regain full functioning of your arm.
