I have been a pain sufferer for 15 years after a multiple roll over mva that broke my neck and caused other damage. I have always suffered even as a child from insomnia which doesnt help. Last week I attended a pain clinic hopeful that a recent ongoing flare from a injury to my leg would get treatment, the best I can describe it is bugs with razor blades skiing on my left thigh, it used to be only like that when clothing rubbed against it but worsened when I started having stress seizures that my dr thinks is being caused by pain levels overwealming my system. However no one seems to want to change my treatment to assist the worsening of my condition. I am currently on lyrica, jurnista, valium, serequel and a limited amount of panadiene per fortnight. What suggestions can I make to my dr? Is gabopentin really that successful? What are the side effects. Im not after a high im after a pain free day and am sick of being treated as a drug seeker when all I want is a normal life....im so frustrated.
