    I took Lyrica for a while and at first, I had the hangover feeling. That got better with time. I personally don't like Celebrex due to the nausea feeling it causes.

  • hi,
    I never tried gabapentin, celebrex as when i took them, i felt uncomfortable and a kind of headache which last for hours, so i will not prefer all this
  • Im more foggy for 2-3 hours in the am after taking Quetiapine Fumarte, Tramodol and Gabepentin before bed.
    31 months now on the meds (quetapine only last 3 mos) with recent increase in doses to provide same level of relief.
    Hungover is too strong for me, but I know what you're going thru.
  • thats feeling of hungover is the least of my problems now, i had a major setback, pain wise. about 2 1/2 weeks ago, i was feeling real good, for a while, so i decided to try and stretch my hamstrings, laying on the floor, and lifting my leg up with a strap. i did not feel any pain right away, but 2 days later, i was getting ready to do my normal stretches, and all the sudden my back started hurting real bad, like when i first hurt it 2 years ago. well i have been icing, did try some heat, using tiger balm patches, just to make thru the workday. now its feeling better, but my sciatic nerve pain has returned with a vegence. so still icing, even went to the chiro. hopefully it will calm back down. i wish i could only complain about the hungover feeling.
  • Yep. The sciatic nerve pain wil kick any other pain in the ass , Any of the nerve pain flare ups overcome just about any other pain you got going on !
    With some luck it will subside for you ,

    I done the same thing a few times felt good so stretch the hamstrings got brave and it backfired , Pissed off the nerve and realised oops that was a mistake,

  • I don't get sciatic pain when I do my stretches. Instead, my back simply gets annoyed as hell and begins spasming just a few hours after I stretch. I recently went through an 8 day period in which the spasms were so strong that I was unable to do any exercises at all.

    It hurts because I don't stretch and exercise; it hurts even more when I do.

  • Catfishman, I thought I would share with you my experiences with a medication change and how much better I felt since. I have been on Nucynta 50mg x 2, TID for almost a yr. and it works well for pain relief but does cause me to feel foggy and severe mouth dryness. I had knee surgery on Jan. 18 and was given Dilaudid 2mg to take by surgeon. I usually take 1-2 every 4 hrs. but if pain is still severe I can take one more an hr. later. First thing I noticed the next morning was no dry mouth...yeah and I actually woke up at an early time 7am compared to noon on Nucynta. I am going to talk to my primary this week and see if maybe we can change to Diluadid. She may not but worth a try. I have my Nucynta locked up in safe and will take so she knows I am not taking both :) Just thought I would share since you are only other one I know who uses Nucynta on a regular basis like I do.

  • thanks for the info kelli,
    well my back is feeling alot better, i spent $120 for 3 visits to the chiro last week, i really dont know if it helped that much , but i felt pretty good when i left there, of course. but he just want a person to keep coming back, i saw him on mon,wed, and fri, when i was leaving friday he was like, i will see you monday, i said cant afford you. anyway my sciatic nerve pain in my leg has gotten somewhat better, but now the pain is mostly my thigh and calf are. i guess this is my new bettter. i cannot believe how well i was about 5 weeks ago.
  • Im sorry Catfishman. It sucks when you go from having such a good run and then wham a bad flair will hit. I have never been to a chiropractor except as a welcome visit when he joined our doctor office and after pain I had the next morning I will never go back. I had same experience with a PT group who was affiliated with my first surgeon. They wanted me there 3 times a week and I was charged a 40 copay each time and did the same exercises I could do at home so did not go back. I know is discouraging but dont you give up and say this is your new better....Oh no, you will get back to where you were just 5 weeks ago, I can just feel it.
