Topic: neuropathic ache in my upper lip - can anybody help?
I´m just trying to find some fellow sufferes: does anybody have the same problem as me?
I´m an oboist from Germany and since March 2007 I´m no more able to play my instrument because of a neuropathic ache in my upper lip (in the middle, directly at the vein).
It began after having played too long and under stress. Normally this kind of illness disappears with a combination of medicine for epileptics and and antidepressants (Gabapentin and Amytriptylin). But this does not help in my case.
I´ve also tried several alternative therapies - with no effort...
Is here any oboist with similar symptoms who can help me or shares my pain?
