  • hi sorry to hear you fed up and sore, i was diagnoesd yearly this year too, most of my pain is neck head and arms, my hubby was given a Tens machine by the pain clinc he goes too and it did nothing for him, but i have been using it for a couple of times a day, and yes it does not get rid off the pain but it does help quite. good luck and gentle hugs


  • i suffer from severe pain, Im on gaba, baclofen duloxetine nothing help I hope you can find something that suits you

  • Sorry your suffering at the minute, I'm taking Amtriptaline and Tramadol at bed time and it seems to be working for now! I try to stick with co-codamol during the day otherwise I would be too spaced out. Good luck and hope this helps xx

  • Hi Joed, sorry to hear you are suffering, but you really do need to sit down and talk over things with your Dr. I too have severe fibro and chronic M.E. and other conditions too. How long were you on Gabapentin?

    It is a stepped dose drug and unless you had spoken with your Dr or Specialist I don't know that it was a good thing to come off them?????

    Good luck and Gentle Hugs x x x

  • How do you know it was your medication causing your
