My Orthopeadic doctor sent me to a Pain doctor, my ortho doc wants to see if this pain doc can help me, if he can't i have to go back to my ortho doc. The pain doc has done 2 epidural cortisone shots in my back on both sides of my L5, and i have the 3rd shot coming up next week. The Pain doc put me on Flexeril... Did not work... So he put me on Gabapentin. I was just wondering does Gabapentin work? and has anyone ever herd of it?
Unfortunally... my back is not really feeling any better
I just started Gabapentin today... so we will see.
I'm 24 years old, I have had back problems since I was 17...
June 6th 2012 (I was 20 years old) On my L4/5 I got a Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF) with 4 pedicle screws, 2 rods, and 2 cages.
