: My mother had a severe right brain stroke in August and is confined to a wheelchair. She constantly complains of buttocks pain and begs to get out of the wheelchair. The doctor has ordered that she be in the wheelchair for no more than two hours at a time and then put back in bed. She does not have any sores on her skin. Can anyone recommend a medicine other than Tylenol? Someone mentioned Neurotin. Does anyone have any experience with this drug? Thank you.
