A few months  after i had my caesarean section i had severe spasms & pain & i took lyrica for the 1st time. The pain went away which was such a relief but i put on weight. Fortunately i was able to cease it & the pain never came back. During the summer months i get neuropathic pain in my right leg mainly. Like you, i don’t take anything as nothing really helps. If i have a long trip to Europe i may take valium as the cabin pressure increases pain dramatically. Just recently i’ve developed sciatica in left hamstring which makes standing extremely painful. At night i get strong cramps that wake me. I was curious whether a cortisone injection could work. Do you have any information whether botox works?
