I had acute compartment syndrome for an injury in 1995. Fasciotomy done. After several surgeries on leg, end result was foot drop and pain. Pain subsided to manageable level after a couple of years. It would only get bad in the winter. Was initially on neurontin then switched to lyrica.
A couple of years ago the pain intensified. Since September of 2008 it has been steadily getting worse. It is now debilitating. On 450 mg of lyrica per day and may titrate to max of 600.
Normal wait time for pain clinic here is 8 months. My GP is trying to fast track me. I am not sure what the pain clinic will do for me. Anybody have any suggestions. I have tried several other medication and have not been able to tolerate them. The lyrica helps. However, I get extremely loopy on it.
