Thu, Aug 1 6:53pm · Gabapentin a controlled substance in Virginia. What do I do? in Neuropathy

Yes. You are correct. My apologies for misstating. I can still get Gabapentin, it is just much more difficult. Please move my initial post to Neuropathy, let the people know I over-reacted and it is still available. And this is just for VA and few other states. @cognac

Dear Friends, the Gov. of VA was the one to determine Gabapentin should be controlled. I can still get it, but it is strictly monitored. I apologisze for the confusion and REALLY appreciate your suggestions about Lyrica. @cognac

Gabapentin is now a controlled substance in the State of Virginia. Does anyone have any substitute remedies for leg, ankle and foot pain? Cognac6

mrector, do you know what meds your doctor used? Mine used Lidocaine and Marcaine. @cognac

vickiet, I had the shots in S1, L3, L4, &L5 and the results were wonderful, fantastic, magical!!! INSTANT pain relief!!! The discomfort from the injections was less than having one Flu shot. Total time was less than 10 minutes. I iced my back for 24 hours when I got home, as instructed, because everything was sore, but I'm sure we both know the difference between sore and pain. When I went for the follow-up 3 weeks later I asked my doctor if he had a medical degree, or is he had gone to New Orleans and learned Voodoo!!!! That was 6 weeks ago. I know it doesn't work for everyone, but I hope it does for you. If you're like me you've been walking hunched over so a word of caution. Because I was no longer in pain, I was able to stand up straight. I forgot that would change my sense of gravity and balance. So be careful until you get your equilibrium back. Good luck, vickiet. Please let me know how it goes. cognac01

Oct 14, 2018 · Pulmonary Fibrosis* in Lung Health

wba3721 You sound exactly like me. All I can say is I understand. I've been like this since 2014. I'm not taking Esbriet or Ofev because I fear the side effects, plus I understand it's very expensive. Nor am I going to Pulmonary Rehab because it's never been mentioned. Does it help you? PLEASE respond. Good luck in your research. cognac
