Back Problems board

Hey girls, I was reading your post and thought I would add my two cents worth. I am only 6 weeks post op and my doctor started lowering my pain meds two days ago at my visit. Not going so great. He also started me on 300mg of neutontin at night. Forgot to ask him how long before it starts working. I have fibromyalgia and I to have noticed a tenderness in other parts of my body not related to my surgery. My fibro has been under control for many years with the antidepressant celexa. I think the trauma of surgery may have awakened the beast. The main thing is to try to keep your stress level down ( I know thats hard when we are in pain) as this seems to make fibro worse. Hope this helps. ...........................Debbie
