Well lucky me...last saturday I was walking out of my house and fell. I landed with my palm hitting the edge of the step. The pain up my arm was horrific. Now I think I know what a 10 is.
When I went to the doctor the next day he confirmed that I have at least one and maybe more fractures around my elbow. Good news no cast, bad news lots of pain and swelling.
Then I went to my neurologist for my monthly visit and he tells me he's afraid that this was caused by a side-affect of the neurontin so he cut the dose. There was no other possible reason for falling. Now that I think about it I have been a bit unsteady lately. When I walk down stairs I sometimes feel like I am tipping forward.
I asked him about changing the meds since the increased neurontin wasn't cutting the pain before I fell and he mentioned Topomax. But he doesn't want to change anything while my arm fracture is causing pain. I guess this makes sense.
