Told you I would let you know how it went @ the Neuro today, and he seemed to think that "some" of my pain and cognitive function "problems" may be linked to depression or to the Zoloft I am taking- or better yet, not taking "enough of"!! He did order an upper cervical spine MRI, and said that there was a possibility that there was some damage done to the nerves in my neck, which might be causing some of the hyper sensitivity in my upper body, but it seemed like there were too many issues to address, and it sort of freaked him out. Anyway, he switched me to Welbutrin XL, and in a month I will switch from Topamax to Neurontin or Lyrica, and see how that goes, too. He didn't rule out a brain scan- but I was a little put off by the "suggestion" that ANY of my pain is linked to depression. I know antidepressants can help, but my depression didn't make my pain, my pain made my depression. I just want this pain to stop. It wears me out.
