- How long after stopping gabapentin did the parasthesia last ?
Fro six weeks I had an intermittent but fleeting pain in my ankle, sometimes once or twice a day up to several times a day it was intense, but lasted only seconds and would go, then one morning i got it and it didnt go, it came up the outside of my ankle and calf and into my butt , I had a fall on my back last year and have had pain in my back L4/L5 so this seemed to tie in with that and I thought it was sciatic pain, it was awful ,I was prescribed Gabapentin and took it for a few days the pain improved greatly in my ankle and I stopped taking the Gabapentin, but subsequently I got parasthesia in my hands and feet , i had stopped the Gabapentin but the parasthesia continued for around two weeks afterwards, gradually almost disappearing except for a slight sensation in my hands in the mornings which was two months ago now, but the parasthesia has since returned to both hands feet and lower lip not as intense as last time but disconcerting as i was convinced previously the Gabapentin was to blame, does the parasthesia come and go once the Gabapentin is no longer being taken, it seems unlikely to me.
When I got the first bout of parasthesia I went to my GP who referred me to a Neurologist who I saw two weeks ago, by which time i was asyptomatic, he did a thorough physical examination , reflexes, vibration tests, eyes ,speech etc and said everything was good , but I am now stressed out again by the return of the parasthesia this week, I have asked to be referred again to try to get to the bottom of it all
My question is does parasthesia from Gabapentin have long lasting effects even though I only took it for a few days, i am interested to hear if anyone else has had a similar experience ?
- What medication has been effective for pain from postherpetic neuralgia
Had shingles a few years ago. debilitating pain an stiffness and itch on left side --same place had rash -- doctors play the pill game---start low dosage --increase dosage, give it time. Nothing has worked. for example, Cymbalta, tramadol, elavil, baclofen, lyrica vicodin
- People with statin drug damage (3 answers)
Have been on disability for 18 months. Can not walk to car without being fatigued. Have lots of nerve pain. On a lot of Pain meds an they don't always work. I was told this one won't do that an this one won't do that. The one that put me over the edge was Zetia. My doctor's don't know what to do or how to even talk to me. They are scared to try to help me or even write down what they say. My Neurologist said he don't understand why I'm still hurting you haven't taken a statin in 18 months. What a fool. I see no hope of getting over this and am very disappointed that the medical establishment an no interest in trying to help. They sure were interested in giving me the damn things. They never said this was caused by statins. THEY DON'T KNOW. They are very uneducated in this.
- How effective in thc in the treatment of post-herpetic neuralgia
bout of Shingles involving the left T6 dermatome with associated rash when I was a resident in medicine some 40 years ago. Received the Zostavax injection 2 years ago. Have had a bout of post-herpetic neuralgia c/o a rash approximately one year ago that required ANSAIDS, Zarontin and narcotic analgesics and spontaneously resolved after symptoms of approximately 3 months. Now afflicted again with neuritic symptoms in the same dermatome without a rash. Seems to respond some to ANSAIDS and Zarontin. Wondering if THC may help me get off the Zarontin.

- Faslodex driven hell
I have metastatic breast cancer...which has spread to my bones. Needless to say...I'm not a happy camper. Faslodex was my oncologist’s drug of choice for me. I've been on it since July 28, 2014....My first month was loading dosage...and each month that has followed I receive two injections in my tush...250mg each...for a total of 500mg monthly. Tomorrow, Monday November 17, 2014, will be my third round...not including the month of loading. As per my PET scan one month ago...the Faslodex has not started working. From everything I have been told...and read...it takes four to even six rounds to start working...if in fact it works at all.....@%^&*@#...says it all...if ya know what I mean.
What has kicked in from Faslodex...are some horrific side effects......About a month ago...I started having a strange little cough...dry...most of the time.....At times the cough becomes uncontrollable for aprox 15 / 20 minutes...then calms. NOTHING works at relieving it...although I suck down water like it is my last drink on earth...and use a wonderful...soothing throat drop, Halls Breezers...Cool Berry...which eases me...even if it is only psychologically, it is magical. The cough has gotten considerably worse over time...and for those that don't know me...I am sure they think I smoke ten packs a day. My voice is also affected at times due to the cough. My breathing is horrific...and I can no longer walk for any length of time...or for more than a short distance.....Nor can I walk and talk without coughing...and or losing my breath. Stamina...this I have none of!!! And this past week...the shit hit the fan.....Joining the cough...are bone and joint pains...as well as muscle pain. When I called my doctor...@ Sloan Kettering...I spoke with the nurse...and she had not a damn clue as to what might help. As a matter of fact...she told me that she has never heard of any of the side effects that I am now having. WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE???? EVERYTHING!!! However...when I check reputable sites...I find not a few...but hundreds of other people with the same side effects.
From what I have read on all the sites...the only way "WE" are going to get help with issues like these...is by sharing with one another. Not one of the individuals that I speak of has had any positive help with their side effects from their doctors. Am I pissed off??? You bet I am. As for depression...that only comes in small doses for me.....like yesterday...when my body hurt me so badly...my cough was out of control...I had difficulty breathing...and I could not stand on my own two feet without holding on. That moment in time has passed...but for how long??? What will I be hit with next??? When???
