Re: Any1 on the medicine called " Gabapentin" for nerve pain?
just a tip i do myself for a similar problem in my cervical spine, i apply a heat bag to the affected area for no more than 10 minutes before doing any stretching exercises and i only stretch until the muscles start to to pull and then stop, i hold that position for 10 seconds and then repeat, i found trying to do exercises without applying the heat first only aggravates my condition more so.
Then there are some that say you shouldn't use heat on an already inflamed area, use cold packs, i say, do what works best for you, the cold packs did not work for me , actually made it worse.
Also an MRI is usually done before any real definite diagnoses is made, you don't mention anything about it though ???
Some people swear by Neurotin for nerve pain, i was one that couldn't handle it though, made me to grogy, but everyone is not the same.
good luck with it anyway.
