I haven't seen any recent entries regarding Topamax for chronic pain. I am dealing with allover pain right now; neck, jaw, shoulders, thoracic and lumbar spine, elbows, etc., etc. Most recently I had my 7th rhizotomy (L4/L5 and L5/S1, bilaterally), which has not given me the relief I usually get, and has, in fact, exacerbated my low back pain and nerve symptoms.
I have increased my Gabapentin (neurontin) and Baclofen, and am currently on the max dose of Aleve, but am getting no relief at all from this. I am expecting my first grandchild to arrive in 11 days, and am feeling sick at the thought of not being able to hold her.... :W :-W:waiting:
Topamax was brought up by my GP a couple of weeks ago; can anyone give me their opinion??
Thanks so much.
