So it IS from something!

I'm still relapsing - the pain comes and go, but I haven't felt normal feeling in my fingers for two weeks. My hands hurt!

I went to my PCP today and she said I have a sinus infection, my lymph nodes are swollen in my neck... I have "something".

She gave me a Z-pack and I can't tell you how pleased I am with that. Because I don't want to take 3 big horse pills today on top of everything else.

I'm on 1600 mg of Gabapentin now - 4 pills 4 times a day. I have darvacet for the pain and I take ambien so I can sleep :(.

I still have my depression med and my shot too. This sucks.
But I have to say - I saw a story about a woman with ALS today, and I really was thankful that I had MS and not ALS. It could be so much worse- I shouldn't complain.

I hope you're all well!
Take care!

Hello Pamela, I to have MS and went from the Gabapentin 1600 mg a day to Cymbalta 60mg that helps with pain and depression and also Pregabalin 150 for the pain. I take one each morning and it really has made a great improvement to pain in my legs and feet. It works well but stay ahead of the pain, If I get pain before the or if there a next that day, It will not help with pain. I have smoked pot and nothing in my opinion works better but burns my throat. I do not smoke since the change in meds. This year I seam to get cold after cold and was just looking on line for info regarding my immune system and frequency of colds. Hope this helps you.

Thank You.
