Update: Neurologist prescribed Gabapentin 300mg twice a day. Wants me to try it for 90 days. I know this Dr. personally so I will take a chance. Been a week on it and the it has gotten rid of the pain though the numbness remains, which we all know is a tough nut to crack. Some on here have said that this is not a long term solution so I will keep you advised if the pain creeps back in.
Footnote: I go back to St Mary’s tomorrow morning for my final eye surgery for the detached retina. Finally will be done with that mess. Irwin
