Seriously that is all I can say. I was able to see a pain specialist with the county hospital. They finally remembered me and set up an appointment for me. The doctor prescribed Neurontin (Gabapentin--Generic Name), and Ultram(Tramadol-Generic Name), and Elavil (Amitripylin) for sleep. They do not prescribe any medicines that do not have a generic to it. So I would not be able to get Lyrica and some of the other new ones out there as there is no generic label to it yet. Anyway, I have felt some massive relief of pain lately and I am just like wow, I can move around and not feel pain. The only side effects that I am suffering through with the Neurontin is the drowsiness, and tiredness, so I fall asleep really easily. The doctor said it also helps with sleep which is great. I have been getting the sleep that I have missed out on LOL. For the Ultram, I know it is a narcotic medicine so I get the usual itchiness which is a side effect and I soak in an Aveeno Oatmeal bath for that one. However I have not experienced that side effect all of the time. For the Elavil I cut the pill in half and take 1/2 the dosage. When I take the full dosage it knocks me out right away, so I could be doing something and it will just knock me out right away LOL. Even though I am feeling a little better with this med, I am still bedridden because I am sleeping so much because of the meds LOL. I just can't win. I am hoping that this med will not stop working as a majority of medicines do with me. *finger crossed* ouch that hurts...okay fingers crossed in my head...aaah that's better LOL.
