Update and Thanks :) - Switched to Topamax

Hi - just wanted to say thanks to all of you for your great advice and support. I talked to my doc and she switched me from lyrica to topomax. I'm in the process of weaning off the one and building up on the other, but so far so good! Already I think the topomax is hitting my nerve pain as well, if not better, than the lyrica. I also switched to oxy from Avinza and have been off the couch and walking! Anyway, I feel I am on a new and better path.

I really liked Shoreline's comment about how managing pain is about so much more than the pills. I know at certain points in my journey I have focused too much on them for help, instead of looking to other modalities.

I am amazed, after reading more of your personal stories, which are true testaments of bravery and perseverance, that you still manage to give of your selves in terms of advice and support. The community this board provides has really helped me. So, thanks again.
