Hi, Finally weaned off the Neurontin. Now I am getting the pain down my calf and foot numbness that I got before the fusion surgery. I had been on Neurontin for about 9 months. Guess it was helping the nerve pain. I thought that pain was gone forever after surgery. I fired my physical therapy doctor. My primary wants me to try amitriptyline. I had taken that years ago for my bladder. She wants me to try it for the nerve pain and see what happens. Anyone ever try it? I had some x-rays today. I see the surgeon Monday. Will see what he says. Does anyone have the bad muscle pain. My left buttock has knots of muscle pain. The therapist asked me if I ate cement because it was so hard. Boy does it hurt. She works them out but later that night it is back. I can't believe it can hurt so much. They all say it is normal. I take 2400 of Skelaxin but doesn't see to be doing much. The surgeon gave me Flexeril but made me too sleepy.
