Hi and Good Morning to all,
I've been to my doctor this morning and told him about my pain getting worse, he's decided to try me on Gabapentin for nerve pain, I'm currently taking....
I've got to take 100mg 3 times a day, he said that he'll start me on a low dose and if it doesnt work he can push the dose up to as high as 800mg a day.
My question is.... Does anyone else take this medication and does it help with the pain, also has anyone had any bad reactions to it?
He still insists there's no pain management clinics lol and I'm having yet more blood tests next monday.
He already knows my inflammation levels are high, its why they are high I want to know and now saying my inflammation level wasn't that high and only just above normal??
So why did he put me on a large dose's of prednisolone a few months ago and tell me "its very high" and he thinks I have polymyalgia? he confuses me all the time!!
I took a list of everything I wanted to ask him this morning, I managed to tell him 2 things, firstly about the pain in my thigh and about losing a stone in a month because I've lost my appitite.
He wasn't interested about the other stuff on the list, he just cut me off as always and gave me another lecture on making myself go for walks and exercise, thats easier said than done when your legs don't work and in agony with burning hot pains lol
I'm so frustrated and feel like a right idiot!!! everytime I go I come out feeling worse than when I went in I feel like I'm going round in circles!
If only it was as simple as he makes it sound, he seems to think he can cure me if I go for a walk!! lol
