SPECIALISTS SAY CAN'T DO ANYTHING FOR ME PRESCRIBED GABAPENTIN AS MUCH AS I CAN TAKE ONLY 35 YEARS OLD
Writing on behalf of son, desperate to help him.
Basically my problem started in 2010 when my messing around in the pool with my younger brother and he landed on my back while I was lying face down on a lilo. I was temporarily paralysed but feeling returned although I was in a lot of pain.
I could walk around and on returning home from holiday went to the hospital, who informed me I would not be walking if my back was broken and told me to take pain killers.
Needless to say my back was broken but healed. Two years down the line, I still had pain and started getting electric shock type pains down my legs and dropping to the floor.
I have had MRI scans, nerve conduction tests and told I have broad based posterior disc protrusion L5/S1 with faraminal stenosis and nerve irritation.
I am told that after all this time my nerves are permanently damaged and will not repair and that surgery is too dangerous. I am dropping to the floor several times a day and find it difficult to get up from sitting position. I cannot sit in one position for any length of time and have no confidence going out in case I drop to the ground - people think I am drunk and give me dirty looks.
I have been told to take gabapentin and keep increasing the dose. I cannot work until the dose is correct and the side effects are horrendous. Please can you help or advise, it is hard to accept that at 35 years old my quality of life is so bad. please help.
