Hello. Has anyone out there been diagnosed with Meralgia Paresthetica? What has your experience been like, have you had a nerve block, surgery? I was diagnosed and had my first nerve block and feel no relief. My pain is so bad that I was taking a Vicodin every other hour. I'm now on Neurotin and the Vicidon has been cut back, which was good. Just hoping to meet some folks that have this diagnosis, as well. Thank you

  • hi ie recently been diagnosed with this as well i feel a bit like an invalid tbh as it doesnt seem very common and ive spent the last few months having my kidneys tested. would you recomend surgery as i began having pains when i had appendix surgey which has left me with a minging scar (keloid scar) and have been told its possible that they have damaged the nerves whilst doing this so do you think corrective surgery will work?
