Answer

Treatment includes medications, such as analgesics, antidepressants (ie, tricyclic antidepressants), and anticonvulsants. Other treatment alternatives include the administration of a sympathetic blockade and a guanethidine block, as well as the employment of psychological evaluation and treatment. Rarely, surgery is necessary.
