Have struggled with neuropathic pain now for nearly 8 years ago. Now my mobility is severely effected, getting round is really struggle. Had surgery for reflux and it has effected femoral nerve. Without pregabalin my legs do not move. Always had numb spot in right leg although sore to touch used to limp about few days and then would return to normal although could probably walk about 1 hour and new that was my limit. In last couple of months mobility in right leg has been effected badly and have not been able to work for 5 weeks now and got another doctors line yesterday for 1 month. Doctor put me on duloxitene yesterday as well as pregabelin, maxitram and paracetamol. Looks like will be drugged up to eyeballs. Do not sleep much due to medication side effects . Mobility is really starting to worry me. My GP does not refer you without fight. So used to attend pain clinic so I wrote to consultant myself to see if he would at least re-assess my case, GP said he had letter from him. So see what happens there. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.
