Neurontin can help with pain SOMETIMES, not always. Sounds like you got some real problems and finding a cure can be impossible. I had a hip replacement and got more problems now than before. I been looking at the medical community and eyeryone is in business to help themselves and maybe the patient.
The burden of proof is for the patient to prove they are in pain which is usually imposible. Doctors often use the term "medicine is not an exact science" when they need to but try an prove something wrong with a surgery and it becomes an exact science and the doctors tell you their is nothing wrong.
Medicine has become a "necessary evil" motivated by greed. Few doctors I would now trust.
Asking questions get them pissed off, they often do not have answers and "I don't know" is not spoken in medical terms.
The best care I get is at the VA Hospital which could be considered socialized medicine.
