  • i remember we talked a while back. i think we recommended you hit the big city for treatment. is that what you did? anyway i understand injections can be an effective treatment for neuropathic pain. what kind of tests did the dr perform. you have had pain for a long time. how do you like your dr?......pete
  • Hello pete,
    i went to a new pm here in town she could just tell by my problems i have and the path of the pain that it takes.those injections i will get in 2 wks last time in 93 i had 6 they were painfull.now these days it will probally be easier i hope,Rick
    PS that lyrica gave me bad headaches is that normal??
  • Lyrica caused me to have a terrible hungover feeling after taking it. It worked pretty good for nerve pain, but I had to quit taking it because of the hangover effect. I hated it.
