Hello was diagnosed with a myxopapillary sacral ependymoma (pelvic tumor the size of a softball) and am currently waiting on surgery. I have hydrocodone for back and leg pain, but I have stabbing nerve pains in my penis and anus and bladder that aren't going away. The gabapentin just makes it worse, is there any medicine you would reccomend to replace the gabapentin?
I believe with time the side effects of gabapentin will subside. I just started a higher dose of it today and I'm hurting really bad. I've been on it for 10 years or so. Unfortunately I don't take hydrocodone but if you take it that should definitely help with the pain. If you don't feel any better with time please contact your doctor. Good for to you. Pepper
