Neurontin

Posted by Marty on 6/20/01 at 12:37 (051127)

I've been taking Neurontin now for about 12 days and up till today my feet were feeling much better. I'm taking 300mg in the morning and 300mg at night. The I did was I forgot to take the 300mg yesterday morning until I got home from work @ 4:30pm. Now today they are burning again. Not as bad though. Would that have caused it or is it due to my activity? Was on my feet more yesterday. (Probably a total of 3 hours, norm is 1 hour).

Also is there anything at all that can be done other to help stretch out that tendon that is causing my tts? Can remember the name of it. Connects to inside ankle bone. Tendon probably don't stretch but why did it shrink? I have orthodics if it was caused by mechanical issues. Not sure they were made correctly and I can't wear them at all because they touch my arch and aggravates my nerve.

Marty - I don't know a lot about the medication.

Why do you think the tendon shrank?

I just started taking neuronten yesterday. 300 milligrams three times daily. I have not noticed any pain relief but have barely been able to stay conscious. How long to take before you had pain relief?

Marty - missed your reply till now....no I've never heard of a shunken tendon causing TTS. I have heard of over-stretched nerves causing TTS - if you are stretching a lot, you may actually aggravate your problem.
