Hi Colleen, I know I shouldn’t laugh but the thought of it starting with your tongue really strikes me as funny. When I was first out of the hospital my wife used to laugh at the way my lips would flap as I tried to speak. My MF started with my eyes and they were slow to recover. Doby 48 has a great idea. As a matter of fact my Optomitrist had me attatch a ball on a string and suspend it from the ceiling. I would swing it away and try to catch it when it came back. Use a soft ball as catching it is not always a sure thing.

Paula, I have been on Neurontin for 4 1/2 years and wanted to try something different. I spoke with Dr. Parry at the Synposium about a change. He suggested Lyrica so I tried it. My experience is far from a controled study but I went back on the Neurontin. I felt the Neurontin works better. I take 400mg 5 times a day including in the middle of the night.
