I had bi-lateral radical neck dissections and cobalt treatments, 39 years ago. I have pain from chronic muscle strain from the large muscles being removed; phantom limb pain from the trapezius being denervated; pain from everything being radiation burned. I'm now having headaches and my MD wants me to try topiramate. Has anyone else used it for this? I'm not enthused as regards being a guinea pig.
It helped me with fibromyalgia. It is very calming. I think the fact, I was less stressed & more passive helped most. There were many clinical trials even though, they didn’t prove to be a huge success with high percentages for chronic pain, diabetic nerve pain, & fibromyalgia it has been approved off label for it. It doesn’t hurt to try it(pun intended
