Went to see the doctor today.

Post by 75X11 on Fri Oct 31, 2014 8:33 pm

My wrist has been giving me pain for the last month and a half and as opposed to having too much aspirin to try to quell it, I thought I would let the doctor have a crack at it. He x-rayed me and gave me a load of blood tests and wanted me to try gabapentin. I don't know about this stuff. This is the first time I took a drug that said may cause dizziness that makes me almost seasick walking anywhere. Although my feet feel good. But my wrist still hurts, though not quite as much. The doctor thinks I may be starting carpal tunnel syndrome. Great. I am using a left hand touchpad to use the left hand more, it's making a slight difference.

Welcome to old age, 75. I hope you find a solution. Being in pain is no fun. I wish you the best.

I had gabapentin once and it made me feel goofy and couldn't sleep. Maybe ask about Meloxicam. It's an anti-inflammatory. Works wonders on my back and doesn't make me dopey at all.

I guess I will have to discuss something with him. This is probably curbing the pain by 2/3, though the pain hasn't woke me up. I don't know whether it is the side effects or the pain subsidence.
