I had myRhuemy appt on Thursday and she thought my RA was being controlled by Leflunamide however the pains I have had in my leg and foot for a few years and now pains in my hip are restricting my movement were caused by a trapped nerve, and has requested a MRI scan to check this. She has prescribed Neurontin(Gabapentin) and after reading about them before I started them on Friday , as I wasn't sure about them with all the side effects, I'm only on 300mg a day but the pain has eased a bit and I am interested if anyone has taken these and the outcome they have had. I'm sure there are a lot of us with this disease that wish we did not have to rely on these crazy drugs but we want to be able to live as good a life as we can, so pleased we have this forum to share thoughts and feelings. Hope the sun is shining in your part of the country, warm hugs Jane x
