Hi, suffering from slipped disc L4-L5 which causes burning pain down my right leg and foot. Had injection of cortisone two months ago. Unfortunately it didn't work but a course of Predinsolone did, worked well but when I stopped the pain came back. Tried Lyrica 75mg high as a kite, lower dose of 10mg increasing made me feel so sick I had to stop. Was given Amitriptyline tablets but they made me dopey. I am now on Gabpepenting 100mg 3 times daily and will increase soon. Also I am taking another course of Predinsolone so feeling pretty good. Just worried that when I finish the cortisone the pain will be back again. My doctor told me that Gabapentin had the least side effects. Just curious as to what others think. I am so over this it started in early August.
