can any one tell me how long i might be taking this drug for?
i started with symptoms 8 months ago. i'm a lot better than when i first had symptoms, but ive still got the cling film feeling wrapped tightly around my arms and burning in my hands.i tried gabapentin and my dr was trying to increase dose til symptoms would all go. got to the stage of not being able to hold a conversation or think straight. better on pregabalin but haven't managed to get rid of pain completely. weight has increased to more then when i was 9 months pregnant.Sometimes i feel a bit out of it and a little confused, i joke with my daughter that she took advantage of this to get a couple of guinea pigs!
still waiting for a dx. is it possible that it may not be ms .mri showed lesions, lumbar puncture showed o band things was told i needed another changed mri that would be done if i had more symptoms.
also when i asked my dr about heat making symptoms worse, eg washing up, hot bath, toasting bread in front of an open fire,she said there was no reason it should.
