The Next Step

Hi everyone! I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for your support! It has helped tremendously. I went to see my doctor today and I am scheduled for an MRI Monday. I am a little worried about it though because I don't know what they will find on my brain. I have 4 medications now to take every day, 8 pills total. CYMBALTA, GABAPENTIN, and two new ones for pain and to help me sleep.

Thank you <3 I will

Hi Suzanne. I'm glad you found something that helps you sleep. I am talking Cymbalta too, and flexeril at night to help me sleep. I hope your mri goes smoothly. My suggestion is try not to worry about what they might or might not find in your mri. Just try to stay positive and hope for the best. I know it's hard but it might help you worry and/or stress out less. Good look. Sending lots of love your way. Xo..

best of luck and sending you HUGGGGGGS


I hope it goes well and they find out what’s wrong. I am glad your doing better:) hang in there.

So glad to hear that you got to see a Doctor to get some medications to relieve the pain and to help you sleep. We are all here for you. Good Luck and keep us posted.

They gave me DICLOFENAC for pain relief. Nothing so far. I still hurt. It won't stop. I'm to a point of thinking of getting medical leave from work because I am not to productivity.

Thank you very much. No relief yet, but being hopeful

Hi Suzanne,
So glad you got in to the Dr. and got some meds. What did they give you to help you sleep, if you don't mind my asking? I take Amitriptyline. It works pretty good. According to the pharmacist it is an old medication. Originally it was used for depression but then realized it was helping people with nerve pain slot, so now it
Is prescribed for that more than it is for depression. Please try not to worry about your test on monday. Sorry spell check won't accept the 3 letters! (I have a love/hate relationship with spell check!) I will be praying that all goes well for you.
Please keep us updated.

Good luck, Suzanne. Try not to drive yourself crazy with worry. Maybe they won't find anything or something very minor. And if anything is found, it's always better to catch something early, so you can treat it. We'll send you our positive thoughts and prayers that all goes well with your MRI. Please keep us posted on your status, okay?
