How might pain caused by transverse myelitis be treated?
Chronic pain is a common complication of transverse myelitis. An array of medications exist to help alleviate pain caused by transverse myelitis, including nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (e.g., aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen), antidepressant drugs (e.g., Zoloft) and epilepsy medications (e.g., phenytoin and gabapentin). In addition physical therapists are often involved in helping people manage and reduce their pain.
