Stenosis Questions



  • Hang in there. Pain and cervical problems are scary! And, I'm sure you are experiencing some of the worse pain you have ever had. I hope it subsides with the Gabapentin. Keep us posted.--Mazy
  • I hope your feeling better now. I know exactly how your feeling.I went through four years of therapy exactly like that. the gabapentin did help me a lot until i got to surgery and i'm still taking it today. My nerve pain is still bad enough that i can't stop using it yet and the surgeon told me he couldn't guaratee that the pain would subside. His goal was to prevent paralysis.I'm taking the maximum doseage of gabapentin and it helps me to function.Your therapy will definitely irritate your pain level because he's moving things around in there. everytime i went to therapy i had a pain flair soemtimes right away other times just after i would get home. Try putting some heat on it and relax.Do you have a tens machine? Might be something to look into. I got one and it did help calm some of the pain. Good luck and keep posting!!!!! If you have anymore questions for me you can PM me.
