So the neurontin is NOT helping..I'm up at 900mg. It has been a very long process as I'm very sensitive to these types of meds and it's not helping at all. In fact it is causing me to blow up which of course only makes me feel that much better..NOT! I was at 124 now I'm at 135. I work out everyday and my daily caloric intake is around 1100-1300. I drink lots of water.
I was toying with the idea of trying Topamax. I even spoke with Pm Dr about it last time and he said IF I don't feel any better by the next time I see him he will try it out with me. So I start researching it..Oh My Goodness! What have I suggested??!!! I have sever panic issues( almost agoraphobic) and heart issues with bp problems too and I read that this med will cause both. Also the Elmiron I take for the IC has already caused a huge hair loss this Topamax could do it as well??
Can I have some input please? I have tried Lyrica already and I couldn't handle it.
Another question..how do the drs know if it IS nerve pain? I always have said it feels like my bones are breaking and stretching and when you actually feel my back it's rock hard (all the time) from the muscles being so tight. Is there something else I can take instead of these types of pills? It just seems that the drs are throwing meds at me without much thought. Thank you all for any input! Have a blessed day
