    Gabapentin,

I hurt so bad that its hard for me to walk even a few feet. I'm at the point I really can't go now much more and nobody even my doctor has done nothing for me for the pain. I hate my life and can't even do the things that I lived to do, cooking, gardening, shopping and even just to for a ride. Because the pain is so bad at nite if I get a total of 3 to 4 hrs. I'm lucky so I'm tired all day its like a vicious cycle and never getting better or ending.
