Valium helps to relax you more than anything. I took 10 mg at night for a couple of years to help put me to sleep. I became over-sensitive to all opium based painkillers so I had to go through a one week detox in the hospital. If it is nerve pain, try using the THC component of cannabis. I have strong nerve pain in my hands at times. Ingesting some hard candy containing THC gets rid of the pain in my hands. They feel numb after some time which is far better than having them feel like someone is standing on them.
