Well i completely understand your frustration as its an excruciatingly severe pain. However there are options available to manage it.

Carbamazepine is the drug of choice for this condition.

Has you doctor told you about this ?

Other options include lamotrigine, gabapentin, baclofen, tricyclic antidepressants.

These can be used in combination too if one drug doesnt help alone.

You will definitely feel better with the above mentioned drugs.
