Riddle me this? How do two doctors send a diabetic home with steriods for an undisclosed condtion? And never did they mention and changes I might need to be aware of, being a diabetic. Not to menation, the fact that they couldn’t figure out or even consider psorisis now that I have learned more about it, it’s pretty common. I’m not a doctor and I wasn’t aware of this disease. What I have become aware of, is if you catch it early you can take steps to minimize the breakout hence pain. I’m considering taking further action.
I’m not the expert but was searching for another post & eye caught Gabapentin. I’m on pain mngmt 10+ yrs, nerve damage caused by mercury. I took Gabapentin about 1 yr, half your dose, caused terrible depression, & didn’t help much with pain. Researched & found is a seizure drug. I wonder if Dr’s get a kick back from maker bc really push GP, even when told Dr. didn’t feel helping much. Researched & carefully weaned off & felt so much better in a few mo’s. Have friend pushed to take GP, for nerve damage & he became severely depressed, finally weaned off & depression faded away. Agree with David, good idea to research all perscription meds to know exactly what you’re taking & side affects, then decide if really helping or causing more harm than good. Pain meds are brutal on the body/mind.
I’ve attempted to go without, but pain is too severe. I’ve switched to a monthly injection, so far working well, no depression. However, finding info on David’s site invaluable, my hope is to heal decades of damage. Best wishes, Debbie
