I am also one of those who has nothing 'showing up' but there is
most definitely pain! My Dr. has me on a combination of neurontin
[gabapentin] and vicoden. The neurontin does help with the pain,
(if I accidentally miss it? the pain is worse) but the side effects
for me, are pure hell. I have short/long term memory loss, poor
coherence, poor communication skills - in short I am a stupid
version of myself. And not in a sedated way.
The vicoden assist - my Dr is closely monitoring my intake and
while a low dose 3x's a day was keeping up pretty good, it is no
I'm tempted to ask what others are taking that doesn't effect
them like neurontin effects me. I haven't driven or worked for a
year or more and it is driving me crazy being so dependant and
Hoping you all have more pain free days.
