Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
Neurontin What to expect?
I know there was a recent thread about an RX for stacking the generic of neurotin. My question is not the same.
Many you may know I am now 10 weeks post ALIF, I have been on loads of pain meds, muscle relaxer, and sleep aids,.as well as medication for my newly developed bladder issues.
My legs more prominent in the left are week and displaying all sorts of odd nerve pains. From numbness, shake, weak, pins & needles, pressure like BP wrap around my calves, to odd scraped torn skin rug burned feelings. To deep nerve pain.
Surgical hardware looked fine 11 days out, had MRI, due to severe pain and leg weakness. Still showed, obviously my other two level issues which were not touched, BUT showed at fusion site, bulging disc & narrowed foramans bilaterally with stenosis.
Myelogram has been ordered, awaiting date.
Doc prescribes neurotin 300 mg, 1 day, for 1 week, 2 a day for 2nd week, and 3 per day for 3rd week on. Building me up I guess to 900 mg day.
I saw online a host of awful side effects, as well as the "special literature" from pharmacist.
Can my dear fellow spineys please offer me their experience if you have taken this medication.
I'm not worried about gaining 10 lbs, more I guess might bother me (if my cloths don't fit lol!) . My concern are the mood issues and insomnia which I suffer from already and all this suicidal stuff, scares me.
I'm in chronic pain and I hope this med will calm my leg nerve pain down.
How long will take for me to see the GOOD and BAD effects of this med.
Thank you for reading!
Please respond if you have any type of input at all.
Pain free days to all!
