I got neurontin late this afternoon. I am now fighting sleep and slurring words or i think i am slurring words in my mind anyway. I sure would not get anything done but staring into space with this drug. The pain is a little better, but still a definite problem.
Maria the jumping i was describing is not the nerve pain, it is the nerve jumping that comes when i am tired and or falling asleep. I get this after surgery every time.
The sciatica nerve pain is new to me. I guess i don't have to worry about changing positions as that is all i do!!
