Has your neuralgia diminished???

No, it has not. i have just learned to live with the burning, itching, stinging and pain. i have tried everything that i have been able to come across that might have helped. The condition is still very distracting and i loose focus quite bit. I do not do drugs. If there is anyone who has anything that will help, I would like to know about it.
My physician is looking into whether a Pain clinic will consider radio frequency ablation for my issues. A friend has had it done twice and it helped for six months. Will keep you posted.
