The pain only occurs when sitting. Does anyone have experience taking this drug for sciatica pain?
At 34 I've dealt with a lot of Heath issues/pain. Sciatica nerve pain is horrible, I feel for you all. This can be hell, I just started this medication again, and intend on trying to soldier through the side effects this time, as it's bilateral sciatica now. I hope you're all better and hopefully this helps me too for the meantime. I know back/neck/shoulder (not sure what they'll want to do exactly) surgery is in my future. I have bad reactions to surgery, technically the anestethic. Until then I hope for the best, but this is do depressing on top of my severe anxiety and other depression and Heath issues. Knowing we are aren't alone can help, thank for the information posted here. Good luck to you all!
I take it and I’m not getting any relief. I’ve had 4 surgeries. I’ve had a spinal fusion from my t-11 to L-3 , a kyphoplasty of my L-1 , A laminectomy/dissectomy of my L-4,L-5 and S-1 . I also have a spinal Stimulater implant and I’m still suffering with sciatic pain . I go to therapy 3 times a week also. Back injuries are horrible. Good luck to us all . God bless
Hi, I'm ex UK military soldier and suffered from sciatica for around 20 yrs. Being very active and mainly training in crossfit style workouts the functional training kept me mobile and free from pain. Now I have a desk job in civilian life and getting older, 46, my sciatica has just flared up. I have been prescribed 3 x 300mg tablets per day of gabapentin to manage the pain. Since the flare up last week I have only slept for around 2hrs per day and can't sit/ drive at all and in very bad pain down right hand side. Hopefully gabapentin will help. Will keep you all posted. All the best to all
