    I made shish-kabobs on Monday night. standing on my feet. How sad that that could cause my legs to hurt more. neurologist just upped my dosage. I am now taking 900 mg 3x a day.. seems super high dose to me... I feel like I have constant dry mouth. Oh well. Thanks for the reminder that what ever little thing I do could effect me for days... I am new to all of this.

    I began taking Neurontin (1 at night) when I tested positive for ulnar neuropathy in both arms. I had surgery on my left elbow in 2002 and after finally being diagnosed with fibro in 2004 (I've had it for years), I asked the doctor to up my dosage. He wrote my script for 3 per day. Along with my other meds, it does seem to help. I would not want to be without it, especially considering the fact that I do have ulnar neuropathy in my right arm as well.

    Hope this helps with your question.
