Hi, I was put on neurontin and vicodin only. I quit taking the neurontin because of the side effects, but then took it a couple of times during the day when I was in alot of pain and didnt know what else to do, of course it knocked me out. I am going back to the doc to get referred to a specialist to see what can be done. I have arthritis in my facet joints, very low back, cannot be on my feet long or I get pain in my calves, then if I am up too long, I get cramping in my calves, if the weather is changing, I get cramping in them that can keep me up at night. I was told after many tests on my legs that this problem is caused by my back problem. I had a laminectomy years ago for a large herniation. It helped me with that problem, but I was told I also had stenosis, and now because of the cold weather, I seem to be having way more problems with my back and legs this winter, now I also have arthritis in the basal joint of my thumb, and neck stiffness and swelling in the back of it where I have arthritis and a bone spur. I dont know for sure what type of doc to go to. I had to apply for disability because I had to quit my job of 6 years because I tried going back after surgery and found I cannot be on my feet long without symptoms. This was years ago, and I have seen one doc for my neck, one for my back, one for my thumb, lol, and would like to see one rather than many. Do you know if I should see a neuro, ortho, or arthritis doc? Thanks
