Hi I've just got back from seeing a spinal surgeon to discuss my MRI scan. It shows 3 degenerated discs and one slightly bulging disc. But because the excruciating pain only goes to my knees he won't operate. I've got a 6mth open appointment . In the meantime he wants me to take amytriptaline at night and Gabapentin or preglabin /pain clinic injections sorry for the spelling!!!. Even though I explained my low tolerance to these meds I've tried alsorts over the30 odd years of back problems!!!! Please can anyone tell me how they have got on with these meds. Side effects weight gain success rates etc. . Any help or advice would be much appreciated thanks for reading xxx
