... Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me, or relate to my situation. I have suffered from nerve pain for about seven years. It started in my first pregnancy. After trying every therapy out there, and losing 38 pounds, I learned I have scoliosis. This condition can be aggravated during pregnancy (I was very over weight at that time). I have used vicodin (up to 4 5/500 a day, and 6... (4 replies)
... Thanks for the thoughtful responses so far. I greatly appreciate your time and insights. I hope I'm posting this correctly since I'm new at this. The scoliosis was diagnosed by a chiropractor via X-ray in May and confirmed by physical examination by the neurologist. This is the first I heard of it but I have obvious signs-lower shoulder, longer leg, etc. The chiro said is can... (4 replies)
... Thanks for the alert on the sugar issue! Oh, and if anyone has heard of Nurontin having an adverse effect, please let us know. ... (47 replies)

... Oopsy it looks like I made a little typo when I said: "Some of the pain you are feeling might actually be from muscle spasms you might want to talk to your doctor about adding one to your medication regiment. " What I meant was you might benefit from adding a muscle relaxant to your medication regiment. Somehow I must have left out 'muscle relaxant'. Hope that clears up... (4 replies)
... Hi MamaBear - I am sure many people can relate to your predicament, because weight gain is a common side effect of Neurotin & Lyrica. Fortunately for me, weight gain isn't an issue at this point in my life, even though I take Neurotin. However, regarding dieting, I think the old fashioned method of counting calories works best. When I was younger, I lost 10 lbs this way,... (4 replies)
... I'm a little bit confused about your diagnosis, hopefully you can clear things up for me. Do you have degenerative scoliosis or idiopathic scoliosis (having the second would mean you had it as an adolescent but it went undiagnosed). It is my understanding that scoliosis and nerve pain don't necessarily go together unless your nerves are being pinched. An MRI would be useful... (4 replies)
... Yes it is an anti-convalsant, a drug originally developed to control epilipsy. The reason the gov't tried to stop it's being prescribed is because too many users of Neurontin coimmitted suicide. This announcement concerning the warning was on our local TV news at the time ( a few years ago). Be VERY aware if you notice any emotional changes while using Nurontin. That's why... (7 replies)
... Clag, I have Sensory Peripheral Neuropathy caused by an auto-immune disease of unknown origin. I've been fighting this for 3 years. I'm 47 and take 3600mg of gabapentin (neurontin) a day (900mg 4/times/day, it's 3 pills each time) for pain/burning/numbness in my toes/feet/legs/hands/fingers . My wife gets mad at me about my memory also. Back when I was on much less,... (3 replies)
... I was like in a fog when I took that stuff , luckily I recognized a problem and only took it for like a month and then got off it . Things normalized after that . (3 replies)
... I have been taking neurontin for about a year and I have no memory. My fiancee gets mad at me because I will tell him the same thing over and over and forget that I had already told him. I forget how to spell and Have to write every thing down and then I forget where I put the list. It is a normal thing while on neurontin. I had to give up driving because I would forget I was...

... I had been put on Nurontin briefly for nerve pain from a disc problem & depression. I had severe anxiety & horrible feeling all over my body & mind after about 1 week. I was only on 400? mg & demanded to be taken off it. I later saw a news show about Neuronton and it wasn't a GOOD DRUG at all from what they said. People wanted to die on it but pharmacutical companies pushed... (12 replies)
