I am new to this board as of tonight. I have degenerative disc disease in my lumbar spine. I had surgery on my L5S1 four years ago-a discectomy. It was great and I was pain free for the last few years. Recently my sciatica has been pretty bad down my left leg. Had another MRI done. Doctor said that there is nothing surgery would fix at this time I have started PT and he put me on Neurontin. I am titrating up from 300 mg--1200 mg. I am not on 900. I feelsomewhat better-it has been 2 weeks since I started. I am wondering if this has worked for people and how long it takes to feel the effects? And at what dosage ?
Thanks so much (:
