I have a lot of nerve pain and burning to my right lateral thigh since my first right groin angiogram. The cardiologist said he had NEVER heard of that and I must have a bad back. Well, I do not have a bad back and there was nerve damage done when the groin catheter was done. I have been putting up with the pain for over 3.5 months and when I brought this up to my new PCP he wrote an order for Lidocaine patches. They do not work at all. I need some decent suggestions. Anybody think Tramadol 100 BID or TID might work? I am tired of having this chronic pain on top of chronic fatigue and angina. Need some input.'
GOD BLESS ALL,
