Back Problems board

Well I finally got started on my Neurontin and have been taking it full strength for 2 days now ( 300 mgs. 3 times a day) but I have started having some new pains along with my body swelling. I am having hip pains (in joints) and burning pains along my thighs so bad that I can't even touch them.

I am starting to get an incision infection just llike I did with the abdominal surgery. It started up on Friday after home health was here for physical therapy. I have been on antibiotics since my first fusion surgery on Jan.29th. I have a fever of 100.6 today

How many of you have had problems with Neurontin? I can't take Lyrica because it causes my whole body to jerk. What other medicine does everyone take for nerve pain?
