I was put on Neurontin a couple of months ago for bilat arm/hand pain secondary to carpal tunnel/tendonitis that wasn't resolved w/surgery. The Neurontin helped alot w/the pain but the migraine headaches were horrible. It was everyday & worsening & I kept hoping it would improve. Last Saturday night the pain was the worst migraine I had ever had in my entire life & that's saying something. I felt as though the back of my head was going to blow off. Excrutiating. I started to wean down that night & didn't take it last night @ all. I know the doc wanted me to wean down slower but the head pain was too much. Today is the first day that the headache is not a migraine type. Still have a headache though. He wants me to try to go up to twice a day. If I'm not able to tolerate that then it isn't worth taking as it will not have any theurapeutic effect. I asked about Lyrica but he said that the side effects are the same. I'm so depressed as there seems to be no end to this pain. My career is over. I have no idea where to turn.
