Dr. Shoskes - do you define 'get better' by a measurable reduction in stones?

and...

why do some get better and others don't? Mystery of the universe, I guess, but I wondered if there were any theories in your mind.

Thanks...

Does anyone know if the Neurontin weight-gain effect happens even at lower doses? And does Lyrica have the same effect?

Thanks!

driving

Driving in my car over long distances or even being a passenger seems to flare me up in the abdomen.

Does anyone know of anything to make a car seat more comfortable?

Thanks...

In my humble opinion, getting nerve damage from PT has an extremely low possibility. I agree. She'd have to be jumping up and down on you. It sounds to me that part of the current problem may be this catastrophic thinking - Richard's right, you've made fantastic progress yet now all you think of is...

londoner, What are some examples of anti-hypertensive drugs? There are many. I think it would be best for you to use Google rather than rely on me. If you're on medication you should probably consult a doctor before taking on large doses of substances like Magnesium which are already - for better o...

If anyone's taking anti-hypertensive drugs, I've a feeling you've got to be careful with taking extra magnesium.

Richie's right - there ARE a lot of postings on Neurontin. Though, I can't add anything particularly new, I'll just outline my experience. I started taking Neurontin about 2 yrs ago. Reading the contraindications on the packet I was forewarned that it could provoke the user into uncharacteristic or ...

First things first: this site is NOT just for pain. Secondly: DON't PANIC! You are doing many of the right things and your condition is, unsurprisingly, improving. I think you may well never experience some of the pain you have read about on this site. And your frequency of urination will improve as...

Just a point of definition here: herbs are not homeopathic. A herb may have a number of active ingredients in a material dose which act upon our nervous systems. In other words, they are similar to man-made medicines in that a quantifiable, recognizable amount of the medicinal drug is found in the h...

I realise this has been covered in a number of previous posts (I did do the search) but can anyone give me a definitive reason why, if you've identified a muscle that isn't working properly, (irrespective of any neuropathy) you shouldn't treat it with Botox?

Today I went to see my GP over frothy in-the-bowl urine. She tested me for proteins, ketones, sugar, PH, infection etc. (that's a helluva clever test if it works) and all showed up normal. She told me that frothy urine can be quite normal and often just a sign of dehydration in hot weather.
