Namenda and PAIN

July 15, 2009 at 8:28 pm

Linda – I am really excited to know if the Namenda does help the pain and lasts a long time with no bad side effects. I still have so much pain and my neuro. is baffled, but still insists on not giving me any pain meds. I am going to see my internist and ask her if I could try the Namenda also. I do take my husband’s (he does not take them anymore) Vicodins. I usually take one a week. I use them when I have a day where I need to function without pain. I pray the Namenda works for you. Let us know your progress with it.

Maggie – I know what you are going through with the pain. It is very frustrating and depressing. I was doing medical transcription at home and finally had to quit because of the pain and stiffness in my hands. I also have terrible pain in my feet. I sometimes get pain up my legs and arms, but not that often. Lately my pain in my feet and hands are 24/7. I have woken up at night by a big jerk in my body. My husband says sometimes I jerk alot in my sleep. (It’s probably me dreaming about hitting my neuro in the head until he comes up with an answer). If I can not get any relief from my neuro or internist, then I will go see a pain management doctor, at least he will help get me relief from the pain. I pray you get some relief soon. Keep posting, it really does help to have people to talk to who understand what you are going through. I know it makes me feel better that I am not the only one who is in such terrible pain all the time and that they know what it is like.
