Just read some post on discussion of" question pain med & nerves", think I hv it right. Ross & anyone else that uses or had used gabapentin, I was rx'd that 2yrs ago, w/o a clear dx & was being worked up for possible MS , neuro was leaning that way then, I was not told what is was for . When I researched the gabapentine I sure didn't want any more rx'd meds in me w/ no dx still. If u don't mind ,why r they having u take it? Is it helpful for ur mg & cfs? Sorry just trying to put all these pieces together. I did find a lab order from that same neuro for acetocholine,ALL; but we moved back home before i could get them drawn, but my doc here in TN just put me on Mestinon w/o all the "rigamaroe" I went thru in TX. So y didn't she, the Mestinon worked like magic, never tried the gabapentin, still in med cabinet. I know u can't tell me y, hmm I'd like to ask her! Y gabapentin over Mestinon. Ugh just frustrating, 2+years of very important milestone markers for my children missed out on if she'd simply said lets try Mestinon (no dangerous side effects on a low dose if u don't hv it) gabapentin seems to read riskier! Thx for any responses/info! MeLisa

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
