Hi! Sorry about what you're through. Personally, I do
take Neurontin, but it is prescribed specifically for my nerve related pain issues and also migraine prevention. I take other medications for pain management in addition to the Neurontin. I can't imagine the Neurontin making a dent when it comes to my other pain issues. But, that is just me - other forum members may have a different perspective on it.
I think the important thing to do is let your doctor know the side effects you are experiencing and the fact that it isn't helping your pain issues. Do you have an appointment coming up so you can discuss your concerns? I think at this appointment, it would be beneficial to be referred to pain management specialist that has the knowledge and training to treat your pain related needs
I hope you get answers and relief from your pain soon.
