Thanks for the support of this board. It is so helpful to get input from others that understand what you are going through. I do have a name of a pain management doctor if my neuro does not want to change his mind about the narcotics. It’s funny, but I too was almost going to tell him I would buy them off the street, but I told him I took my husband’s. It didn’t seem to make much headway with him. He is starting me on Topamax and weaning me off of Neurontin. Today I had 1 Topamax and 1 Neurontin then took a Vicodin when the pain started. I spaced them all well enough apart. I took my 13-year-old daughter out shopping and started feeling dizzy and lightheaded. It must be getting use to the Topamax. I did come home and stayed there. Doctors don’t realize that we have lives that sometimes can’t stop. My daughter is graduating 8th grade and is valavictorian(sp?) of her class and also is making her confirmation. Needless to say I have a lot of things to get done. My husband works long hours. I need to be able to function without pain interferring every day. The next time he says no to narcotics for pain, I will hand him my list of things that I need to get done and tell him to pick up my daughter and finish the shopping with her.:eek: I’ll bet he’ll be writing that script pretty fast then. Thanks to all and good health to all.
