hi doctor i want asking you about the best drug choice to treatment the nerve inflamition of brain? also i want asking you if there any blood heamrage in brain how i can know by used mri scane test?
he also said the discomfort numbness and tingling I get on my left side of body is probably due to the syrinx and has started me on pregabalin for the discomfort whilst I await an appointment with the neurosurgeon. The neurologist also said when I asked him that it is syringomyelia that I have but usually in syringomyelia cases the syrinxes are much larger.
I took docs advice of taking new drug straight after Pregabalin stopped, and have had bad side effects. I have also had a blood test and it was agonising so I am feeling the after effects of that too.
I constantly ran a fever (i was left on this drug for almost 12 months). My sleeping heartrate was measured by a cardiologist to average 137 beats per minute...resting/sleeping! (as proven by a hospital test where i was alsleep and NOT under stress)! My heart rate normally is half that high. I would get 'world salad' and my sentences would come out all jumbled. I stuttered. I had horrible 80's pop music phrases (or worse-- horrible dark thoughts...or maybe that isn't worse?
Does Lyrica have properties the same as benzos? Can a drug test come up positive while using Lyrica?
* Fibromyalgia * Neuropathic pain associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy * Postherpetic neuralgia The mechanism of action of pregabalin is unknown, pregabalin reduces the calcium-dependent release of several neurotransmitters, possibly by modulation of calcium channel function is probably one of the ways it can help in reducing the neurogenic pain.
But since you can not tolerate the side effects, you may try Pregabalin, a drug more potent than Gabapentin. What is the cause of your neuropathy? Duloxetine is also a good suggestion for Diabetic neuropathy.
15 June 2011 I went with my Mum today to Frenchay Hospital for my monthly check up for the oral drug trial. I saw Dr W (Registrar) and spent over 30 minutes with him discussing my current symptoms. I said that I was still in relapse (5th week) and that I was experiencing tingling in head, legs and arms, as well as severe muscle pain in arms and it was also in legs..,particularly right leg for a few days I also had a cold sore in my nose and ongoing head aches.
No specialist help has been forthcoming, only once when i insisted on a MRI or some other scan to properly diagnose he symptoms. So when I ask for what I know works (OxyNorm - Oxycodone), I get labelled as a drug seeker. The closest I ever got to a test was an x-ray of both legs, which even the guy running the x-ray told me it was a waste of time and money. Well eight years on and still being ignored.
4)Pregabalin (Lyrica). Pregabalin may reduce pain and improve function in people with fibromyalgia. Pregabalin, an anti-seizure medication that's also used to treat some types of pain, is the first drug approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat fibromyalgia. Studies show pregabalin reduced signs and symptoms of fibromyalgia in some people. In one study, about half of the participants taking the highest doses of the drug reported at least a 30 percent improvement.
If this is the case, he may benefit from the addition of a drug that addresses this kind of pain - either gabapentin (Neurontin) or pregabalin (Lyrica). You can ask your husband's oncologist if these drugs are appropriate for him.
Hello Principally you have ,so i think , two methods to reduce your pain.Realistic is ,that the pain never completely disappear. When you describe a " burning pain " after Dupuytren-surgery ,then the reason must be a nerval leason of Nervus medianus.It could also be a scarification around this nervus and then there erupts pressure on this nervus.Eventually ,you can try to make a decompression,but the risk of new scarifications is very high.
And in rare cases, people who used this stuff died or went crazy. The reporting also tell us HOW the drug works, or tell us that no one really knows how it works. The information sheet that comes with the med may say something like: "The mechanism of therapeutic action is unknown at this time," which is just a fancy way of saying, "we dunno how this stuff works." And remember that FDA approval does NOT necessarily mean the stuff works.
... and my bro was on it when he was young, after a "psychotic break." he was like a zombie on it... not to say it's not good for some.. i just don't know who!!!
Hi, Im new here but have been reading entries on your forum for some time and find the answers very useful and have helped me with my visits to my Neurologist, he suspects MS but will not comit until all the results are in. I had my Lumbar puncture/blood test earlier this month now await my results at the end of January. I have a couple of questions if you dont mind. 1/ Does MS effect the menstrual cycle, in terms of making it heavier/prolonged cycle?
the gabapentin you are on works , i have tried it as i have the same experiences with tn, and fibromyalgia, i was just wondering have you tried pregabalin{lyrica} this is what i am on and my brother it seems to work better on me than gabapentin, my brother is on 25mg x3 daily and i am on 200mg x4 daily plus other meds , go back to your doc , there is other meds beside these to try and with trials you might find a happy medium, tc, and good luck
the chemical name for lyrica is pregabalin it is a more potent predecessor for the anti-epileptic and neuragia pain medication is mainly prescribed for neuralgia pain, fibromyalgia, and restless leg syndrome. .it acts on the GABA neurotransmitters and other parts of the brain having unique does not cause for most people euphoria(less than 5% get euphoria at large doses), craving for the want to do it non stop, and has a very low abuse potential,.
Wait can I ask you a question you always hear that pot is the gateway drug lets put it to a test..... My first drug I ever messed with was pot it was my first high..... What was your first drug of choice that you got high on?
I plan to go back to the allergist to test me for chemicals which also cause me pain from irritations. I started the injections again, but they are not calming my symptoms as they did before. and I am writing this in middle of the night since, once again, I am unable to sleep because of my leg distress and panic about what ails me. I have alot of anxiety in my life right now, death in family, new job as a manager, two young boys, etc.
Duloxetine Cymbalta®, Pregabalin Lyrica®, Amitriptyline, Lisinopril HCTZ, OxyContin, Percocet, Oxycodone, Neurontin®, Opana®, Lidoderm® patch, Hydromorphone, Soma, name it, I have been compliant and done what has been asked of me in every regard. OxyContin and Oxycodone in combination Zanax XR, Cymbalta®, Soma, Lyrica®, Lisinopril HCTZ, Lidoderm® patch has been the best combination to control my pain. In late 2011, my pain became much more intense.
I take Lyrica for nerve damage pain 3x75mg a day, prior to taking this drug I was unable to walk very well, had no sleep due to pain etc so for those reasons it has been a great remedy, however...
There are a variety of other neuropathic pain medications you could try (assumming part of the pain is from a nerve), including a new one called Pregabalin (just approved this month) Botox is pretty good for muscular pain - maybe bigger doses may be needed, a minority of patients develop antibodies which reduce the effectiveness of Botox - use of Myobloc another form of Botulinum toxin is then helpful.
If you don't like gabapentin, you may prefer its cousin pregabalin better. I went that route and did not like the gabapentin stuff, but I've been on pregabalin now for a few years and I like it a lot. I would say you have peripheral neuropathy from your cervical spine injury in the accident, and I would also say that your injury has perhaps gotten worse (unless this feels like it did in the beginning).
For neuropathic pain, another medication like gabapentin (Neurontin) or pregabalin (Lyrica) should be added. As for the CA 27-29 blood test, I agree with your consultant that this is probably unnecessary. Monitoring treatment efficacy of the oncolet or the chemotherapy is best done by observing the size of the metastatic nodules in her liver. Decrease in number and size of these metastases is a better gauge of the effectiveness of treatment than CA 27-29 levels.
Lyrica: "DRUG CLASS AND MECHANISM: Pregabalin is an oral medication that is chemically related to gabapentin. It is used for treating pain caused by neurologic diseases such as neuropathic pain, postherpetic neuralgia as well as seizures." I had EMG's which included the needle test and nerve conduction. In 2001 It showed Carpal tunnel in right wrist only, in 2006 both, now these nerve entrapments seem to be moving around.
In April 2010 I was diagnosed with TB of the spine and put on R-Cinex, Pyzina 750, Ethambutol, Pregabalin and Benadon. Last week after having complained to the doc about 'my nerves becoming brittle', another medicine 'Ciploric 300' was added to the list. Now I have joint pain and think twice before getting up, coz it's such a pain in the ... bum! I feel thirsty all the time (dry mouth in 10 min) and have started forgetting things more often than ...
Here is a test I did to prove this to myself. Get your doc to prescribe you Xanax (fast acting anxiety medication)….when you are feeling panicked write down all the symptoms you are having, take the Xanax and re-evaluate your list of symptoms about a half hour later. You will probably find that a lot of your symptoms subside short term. That just goes to show a lot of it is the anxiety.
I am scheduled for a coccygectomy (surgery to remove the tailbone) on the 29th. I am concerned about pain management post op because I currently already take 30 mg of Oxycodone hcl 4 times daily and 400 mg of Gabapentin 3 times daily for chronic pain from severe Fibromyalgia and Coccydinia. I am at this high of a dosage because my body keeps building up a tolerance and doc has to adjust the dosage higher to control pain. I have been at this dosage for about a year.
You may discuss with your physician a novel drug called pregabalin which has been recently approved for relieving the pains of fibromyalgia. You may also discuss the benefits of electro acupuncture analgesia and th advantages of peripheral nerve stimulation for your case. Complementary therapy involving aquatic exercises in warm water also showed to benefit women with fibromyalgia. I do hope this helps. Keep us posted regarding physician's advice.
