  • From this study (8 months ago):

  • I have been in pain and have suffered for over 7 years with muscle pain with cramping, aching, burning, stinging, pins/needles, weakness, numbness and paralysis, etc. I live with fatigue and utter exhaustion everyday and hate having to take medicine period, but have no choice in the matter. I know that this is something serious..I can feel it. I just have to get the Doctors, to find it...and fix whatever it is that is wrong.
    I am trying to find what is the root cause of it all, then I might be able to find some relief.."Lord Willing". I have always been a driven individual and love life. I am a fighter and a survivor, so I will continue forward..until I find a way to the answer.
    The pain level stays around 5 or 6 everyday and can be overwhelming at times, but I pray and I find relief for a moment..from The Lord. Grateful to be alive. Just want life to be normal again and to be able, to spend my time with my family that I have missed so much of.

  • prescribed the Zonegran for sensory loss/tingling/numbness in my right hand & forearm - now have numbness & tingling feeling in my face - have been taking this medication for a month. I was taking Gabapentin for 2 years prior - had severely increased appetite and moderate to severe weight weight gain (gained 20 pounds in 2 years).

    Take the propranalol as a daily migraine prevention medication. If I do happen to get a migraine, I start with the Treximet, if that doesn't work after a day, I start the Frova for a couple of days - my migraines usually last for a minimum of 7 days
