    I use this thing and it doesn't instantly solve it but does relieve the pressure, if you go to the back of your neck sort of where your head curves round (if you get me) and there's like a little hollow and if you massage that it can soothe it a little bit.

    That was of course, when I didn't know the nurses on the phone use the same system anyway.
    Did you think they used their years of training and experience (or whatever they call the two-week course)?

    To be honest, there's so much regulation about what people can and can't say these days. You can start a lawsuit over pretty much anything too!
    That's why you don't get much from NHS direct. It's just a way of stopping people with no problems going to A&E.

    Go and see your GP and see if they think Tramadol is appropriate. It's an atypical opioid, which has particularly good efficacy against neuropathic pain due to its mixed-mode action (noradrenergic, seratonergic and mildly GABAnergic effects on top of opioid receptor affinity).
