... Neuropathy? I was diagnosed with Small Fiber Neuropathy three years ago and have a closet full of drugs that didn't work. Gabapentin did nothing but make me dopey, Lyrica and Cymbalta ditto.
I take Gabapentin (300-600 q 4 hrs) and oxycodone 10mg q 4 hrs. These help, but am almost never pain free. I cannot take Cymbalta. Lyrcia made me lose my short term memory. The Gabapentin also affects my short term memory, but I feel I have to take it to be able to live with the pain. I also take a B-12 shots (1cc) once a week. My neurologist said this is one thing that will help with the healing of the nerves.
I have taken all the same medications as you for my own peripheral neuropathy and had no luck due to side effects. Everyone is different though so it doesn't mean it's not worth a try.
I prefer physical therapy and gentle yoga to help ease my pain now and to keep the brain fog from meds at bay.
