7. I am so very sorry for my slow response.

There was an unexpected death in the family, so I had other places that required my presence this last week.

I have also been down the Gabapentin, Pregabalin path. Unfortunately, neither provided any noticeable pain relief and the Pregabalin made me stupid (even more so than I usually am), so that didn't last long.

I've gone through several iterations of thought since my last posting. I still very much like the idea of capsaicin dissolved in DMSO, but I'm thinking of applying it using a spray rather than a patch. One unexpected obstacle with this plan has been finding a pump sprayer that is made of materials that can withstand DMSO.

But, I believe my biggest problem is going to be the local anesthetic. Lidocaine powder dissolved in DMSO would be perfect, but I'm guessing that pure lidocaine powder will be impossible to obtain legally.

I have an appointment with my GP doctor scheduled for later this week, so we'll see what he has to say.
