Gabepentin Nerve Pain Relief But Still Got Muscle Pain

Gabepentin Nerve Pain Relief But Still Got Muscle Pain

I have been taking Gabepentin for 3 weeks. It has helped with nerve pain, the side effects have subsided a bit now. Does anyone still get muscle pain? I do have tendonitus, sore back and small amount of Arthitis. I happy the nerve pain has gone. Just seeing what other experiences are thank you

My mum is desperate for me to not be taking pain meds cocodomal 30mg / 500mg. I am down to 4 a day which is good but i am still in pain. I know i won't be pain free but anything to improve it. I do need to take more due to wrking. Wish i could go part time. I dont think i could take 1200 mg of Gabepentin i made 600mg but ended up.off work for a week. Side effects eased off now.

I am just so surprised that doctors are expecting gabapentin to work for muscle pain. It's for nerves! Not muscles. Go online and get backup details, then go to your back to your doctor. Personally to me, relying on pain pills is a mistake because they will never stop the pain, you will always get use to them and need higher dosage, and it eventually makes your pain worse. CBD oil is the only semi-natural way for me. Like today. Bad day. Could barely roll out of bed. I got coffee and 20 drops of CBD oil for breakfast because that's all I can do. In about 20 minutes, the pain will ease...not go away! Just ease off to a hum, and that's the best I can expect. Then I can fix breakfast.

Yes. I understand if I was one morphiine and drugs like that.I also get that Fm is a condition different for everyone.When you go either Primary or Specialist they ask you how your feeling,are you depressed,feel any way like doing something to yourself.Well right there you would feel the patient answer.Why send to to another one more money I don't have.

Sometimes nurses and doctors are frustrating.
