Thank You Jeanne and Rayefaye

Jeanne..I have tried both neurontin and lyrica but couldn't handle the side effects of either one. That's how I ended up on the cymbalta, topamax and catapres patch. I have noticed with the increase of the topamax my sweating is less that is a good thing...but the burning and sensitivity is just raging. And I think the Dr is giving me the fentaly patch and lortab for the awful deep pain...and it was feeeling better till the last week of so.

Rayefaye..I have never tried the lidocaine patch I think I will mention them to the Dr. How big are the patches? I need to cover my shoulder it is the worst of my pain..and if I could calm the area down I think I could handle the rest. I also have noticed with the increase of the topamax that my body temperature is a litte better...don't know if it is to help but I will take any help I can get. It just this awful burning and the deep pain I can't seem to get undercontrol. I agree about the weather plays a part in how we hurt...but our wearther has just been beautiful here...broke all the records this week..been in the 70's sunny. But supposed to change starting today getting down to the 50's. Who knows why I just want to hurt so bad. And here for the last few months I thought I was starting to get a gripe on it.

OK others what are you using to control your pain. Dee
