I suffer severe Osteoathritis, have 2 thoracic fractures and lumber no 1 fracture , have Epilepsy and Depression also curvature in spine . Just had some recent x ray results and thankfully no new fractures but the pain I am in has changed recently . GP has now put me on Pregabalin as a pain relief to take along side the morphine and has taken me off other pain killers that did nothing . My report is saying that it is the old fractures and the Osteo. that is causing all the problems I have now and it is all around my ribcage as well so causes shortness of breath . He has also said its a difficult one to treat and will only degenerate ( which it has ) .
What can I expect from this medication as it is classed as Neuropereneal pain ? Think thats right ?
Only low dose of 25mg twice a day to start as I have other meds. to consider .
