Lamotrigine Looking for Others who have used.

New added pain etc. about three days ago trying to figure out what is going on. My hands, especially my thumbs, finger tips, wrist, bones in arms ache and burn. I have had alittle of that in the past but not to this extent, it is difficult to even tough the keys on this laptop. Plus I have these hot flares in both the hands and arms every now and then. I called my Neurologist she won't see me until the middle of next month and her nurse said I would need to wait until then to discuss.
Neurologist suggested I use Lamotrigine for pain I am having in my hip, lower back, buttock, upper leg, feet also. I have tried several of these type of medications with either negative side effects or no help. Please give me your input, I desperately want to try something other than narcotics to help take the edge off.
I don't react to numerous medications well but want to find out if anyone is or has used this medication and the results. I am going to try it one way or another tonight but wanted to hear from you.
Appreciate your help
