Hi Skooze,
Just to let you know, Warmnsunny is a different person; I post as Sunnycal (as in California). But thank you for thinking about us. My husband is the one with RSD. He switched from Lyrica to Topamax because the WC insurance doctor said that the Lyrica might be causing his hands to tremble (and refused to authorize him to go to a neurologist to check it out). The Topamax has been a disaster. For the first few weeks, he was sleeping until 5:00 in the afternoon. He still has the tremors somewhat and his leg muscles are weak. He is light-headed and the pain is not any better. One benefit, I suppose, is that he has lost his appetite and lost 8 pounds. We see the doctor tomorrow, and plan to tell him we want to stop it. My husband may go back on the Lyrica.
We received a new offer from Worker's Comp. It is for substantially less than the first offer because they added in the prescription benefits. That left them less to buy an annuity with, so the monthly payments are less. We are having a lawyer review it to see if it seems reasonable. We are not in court, just dealing with the adjustor.
Hope you can get rid of some of your stress, Skooze.
