My Doctor recently, at my suggestion put me on Nuerontin and I have to say it has been a miracle drug for me. My pain didn't start orginally as nerve pain but the last few months has turned in to nerve pain. I have the burning foot thing going on and the pain runs down the right side of my back through my butt into my foot.
My question is why would it turn in to nerve pain? Was it because we didn't treat my original pain early enough and it caused further damage?
Regardless of how the pain started the nuerontin has brought my pain level down to almost a zero. I am taking 2700 miligrams a day now. Before each dose I can feel the pain creeping up but after I take my dose it goes away.
I am so happy to have finally found a non narcotic drug that is giving me such great results.
I can't believe that I had to be the one to suggest trying nuerontin. What exactly am I paying a docotr for?
