I have had neuropathy and pain in both legs since 2003 - had spine surgery May 2008 that utterly failed and left me with greatly increased pain, now including low back and sciatic - so now 24/7 leg pain both legs, back, thighs...
I can't get any more ESI's due to developing osteoporosis exactly where I used to get the injections (before the surgery).
I tried Lyrica for over a year but major short-term memory problems and quit after leaving gas burners on when I left the house!
Then tried Amitriptyline which didn't do much for the pain and also aggravated my dry eye condition to the point that I had conjunctivitis for months - had to quit.
So - I'm 59, mom is 98 so whatever I take, it will have to be something I may be able to take for up to 40 years! I'm extremely depressed and wake up every morning (assuming I ever got to sleep) wanting to just stay in bed all day.
Any advice? Thanks to all, Rosa
