| | Re: LPR Sufferers who don't respond to ppis. Have you tried a GABA agonist like Lyri
Neurontin and Lyrica and damaged nerves in the throat. Let's understand that these medications are not actually for repairing nerve damage, they help reduce nerve pain. I have taken both for Fibromyalgia for years. I also suffer severe primary generalized osteoarthritis. These meds have done nothing to improve my nerve functions in my spine (OA involvement Cervical through Lumbar). In conjunction with 3 operations on my lumbar spine I am still taking many other pain meds. If these worked for even the pain I would be happy, but alas they have not. I have ulnar nerve problems and I have median nerve damage due to severe carpal tunnel (2 surgeries, bilateral) and I just happen to be taking Gabapentin (Neurontin) and Lyrica at the same time, no improvement. ,They are testing to determine if they will help but this has not yet been proved. Some people with lumbar spinal pain had reported that these meds may have helped with the pain. The use of this for LPR? I don't see it happening. Again nothing can "heal" nerve damage, nerves grow very, very slowly. This means regeneration is a very long process and from the literature I have read and knowing how these meds work I don't believe they will help.
If they worked I think many more parapalegics would be stepping out of their wheel chairs.
I am a little gruff today, I am suffering a bad set-back with my back pain, I have tried to do some gardening and I am painting my interior of the house and I have just been in a lot of pain, maybe I herniated another disc or something. I take 900 mg Lyrica daily, it's not helping.
