... nerve pain especially in my right leg, a L4 & L5 disc herniation along with severe radiculopathy pain with numbness. My feet become numb and I can't hardly walk at that moment, Ihave also had 23 nerve block injections in the last five years. I am having one tomorrow. They don't last if a week sometimes. I had been on Gabapentin 300mg for the last five years. My pain management doctor put me on Lyrica 50mg two weeks ago. I am now in severe pain through-out the night every night. can't even get good sleep. Pharmacist states I should have some relief. I feel I should have stayed on the Gabapentin. Does anyone take the higher dose of Gabapentin goes up to 1200mg. My doctor won't increase the dosage and it worked. I'm so tired of hurting. I am on Percocets with a muscle relaxer that sucks Titzanine. I have been given Tramadol, with 500mg Tylenol and a muscle relaxer that darn Tramadol is a joke. What is the best medication to take. I wish I could take none. Is there a better way to get relief?
Hello msrdt1030! I have been on Lyrica 100mg a day for many yrs. Taking it for Fibromyalgia... that I've suffered from since way back when in 1981. You have to give it more then (2)wks. If you are taking only 50mg a day that is not much! Talk to your Doctor about increasing the dosage! I have had nerve block injections also... for my spinal stenosis they don't last very long. So sorry that you are hurting! I hope they can find some medication that is more effective. Wishing you well!
