How would you say you feel after being on medication? I am so hopeful to have some quality of life back. Right now, I’m not functioning very well. Also, any side effects?
I was prescribed Gabapentin, was ok taking one pill a night, but when I took one at night and one in the morning I got angry, cried a lot and was thinking suicidal thoughts. So I called my pcp up and told him. He still wanted me to take one at night! I refused.it wasnt helping me anyway. Should I try it again?
This medication has been a blessed relief for me.
I am on 3 Los of pain killers that do not help I have been on lots of different ones but they do nothing for the pain. I find walking is getting so painful that I don't want to go out can any one suggest some thing that might help
Hi, I'm new to this group. I have severe neuropathy and I believe the Dr. said spondelosis (?), and herniated discs up and down my spine, worst in my neck and low back. All I know is screaming pain, burning, stabbing,etc. I'm in pain management, so I'm given pain killer and muscle relaxer. Since the pain is so unbearable, slot of neuropathy patients are using CBD. Just wondering if anyone has tried it?
I can be sitting down and I get this strange pain in the middle of my foot underneath. I get a similar pain in my wrist sometimes too but am not sure what is causing it.
