Nov 3, 2016 · carotid artery dissection in Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases

I was diagnosed 10 days ago with a carotid artery dissection and a pseudoanuerysm. Luckily just a t.i.a. from it. however I have been having nightly headaches and neck pain when I turn my head to the side or tilt it to the side. I think this is scary to have. I wait 3 months for a cta again to see if it is healing. I get left facial pain off and on. I was told no chiropractic work done and to avoid fast head movements. Is lifting also something I should be careful of? Also any tips from anyone on what to do or avoid.? Thanks

Oct 10, 2016 · Does anyone have a treatment for Neuropathy due to chemo in Neuropathy

i take gabapentin, however sometimes it seems to quit working. than I go to acupuncture for about a month to get it back under control. I am a 5 year cancer survivor and the Taxol gave me small fiber neuropathy. my hands and feet feel like bees stinging. also, no feeling of hot or cold up to my knees. I am OK with my meds during the day. Laying in bed at night is bad, and when I wake up it is extremely painful. I think my meds probably wear off during the night.

Aug 26, 2016 · gabapentin and muscle pain in Chronic Pain

I have been on Gabapentin for 5 years now after Chemo. I have been able to decrease my dosage and am now on 600,g 3 times a day. For a while I was on 900 mg 4 times a day. I would set my alarm to wake up and take it because if I didn’t the pain was severe. I guess I live with pain of about a 3 out of 10 all of the time. It is worse in the morning because I go longer than 8 hours to take the Gabapentin. It is a lifesaver. I did have a weird flare up and acupuncture brought it back down to my normal level. I also sometimes get a numb tongue and upper lips and chin. Weird!
