For Postherpetic Neuralgia: I've had moderate to severe low back pain for over 20 years due to herniated discs. After years of being handed Percocet (which only worked about an hour for me) and everything up to straight OxyContin, I think I have found something that works! It's only been about a month, but in combination with Percocet, the severe pain has been minimized. I gave it an 8 because I never want to over hype a medication and I've only been on this about a month.

For Postherpetic Neuralgia: I have had this condition for 3.5 years now and no diagnosis as why it's happening. Epidurals, narcotics, Tramadol, Lyrica don't seem to work for the "painful tingles". Gabapentin helps with that, but my pain is still acute. The numbness over my right rib cage is nearly unbearable. 12 doctors want to ease the pain, but no one wants to find out WHY! Plus, they are not very good at easing the pain. Now they want to put a neural stimulator in me and if it's anything like a TENS machine, all it will do is irritate me. I will not go off the Gabapentin until my diagnosis. The side effect of not being able to remember words really bothers me.

For Fibromyalgia: After decades on pain meds, they are working less and less. In addition to fibromylgia I have bulging and herniated discs, neuropathy, and (controlled) epilepsy. I have learned to live with constant pain. My Doc suggested Gralise (gabapentin) and said that he felt confident I would see good results. I am AMAZED. I saw immediate improvement in my ability to walk and move around. I am experiencing considerably less pain. I am concerned because my insurance will not cover the brand (which is time released) that I am taking and it is expensive, but I remain optimistic and I will try the 3 times a day dosages. I have not felt this good in many years.

For Postherpetic Neuralgia: I have nerve damage caused by surgery for removal of a Bartholin's Gland cyst. The nerve damage causes me constant pain, when untreated, from a scale of 8-10. The Gralise (along with Norco) makes it tolerable and in the mornings, sometimes my pain goes all the way down to a 4 (not every morning). The side effects I have are dizziness, inability to find words, blurred vision, and, strangely (because of where my pain is), increased libido. I can't even sit in a chair, yet all I think about all day is sex. The Grailise has helped a lot with my pain, but I only rated it an eight because of all of the potential side effects. As soon as my doctor finds another treatment (like a nerve block), I'm going to get off of it.
