But I’m not that patient when it comes to pain. I got the results back from the blood tests that showed inflammation and was told to go to a rheumatologist. No more pain meds but was put on gabapentin slow dose to start. I’m not sure how long it takes to start helpingb but it is still painful to walk. And the gabapentin makes me so sleepy. Does anyone know anything about taking this? I’m trying to take care of my 3grandkids until the 23rd and and having a hard time. Other than that I’m do ing good and hobbling along. Really feeling like a grandmother. Ha!
