[QUOTE=dayton]*, I have bulging discs in four places, also some edema which they can't figure out where it's coming from. The doc said the bulging is normal when you're 54 years old and overweight, HA.
My right leg has started to go numb and the left is just a little. I feel kind of wobbly. This all started after I had a lumbar block for rsd in October. I called the pain mgmt doc who originally did the block and they want to do another one in December and I'm scared to death to try again.
Gee, I feel for you. They gave me neurotin which makes me dopey plus the elavil. When I take them together I am just wiped out. I went to sleep at 7:45 last night and woke up at 3:30 (doggie had to go out). Then when I take another neurotin at 6 I really don't focus until about 10. This is difficult when you work full time.
let me know how you're doing.[/QUOTE]
Forgive my ignorance but what is rsd block? and if you're scared I definitely don't want one of those! LOL! What about the neurontin? I mean what do you think? I have been offered it before and refused due to the side effects i read about I.E. muscle weakness-I can't really do lunges with weakened muscles-LOL-like I can do them anyway anymore...at the time it was offered to me I could still exercise (about 6 mos ago) now i am desperate-does it help you sleep? I am taking Vicodin, Topamax (for migraines) and ambiem -sometimes Soma but none of them do much fpr me. Today was a real bad day. How bout you? how was your day?
