Newly Diagnosed with Primary Progressive MS

Hi to all! I was diagnosed with RRMS in 2016, but apparently really have PPMS. I was put on gabapentin, which immediately helped, but now find the constant hug pain returning and the hip and back pain horrible. I would appreciably any advice regarding pain meds and tips to help. I feel like I am slipping downhill fast and desperately need help. Thanks!

    Hi Rosie, I am sorry you are having such pain. I know how you feel when it come to pain from MS. I too take gabapentin, but I also take Cymbalta. This along with my preventative shots, beta seron , seem to help. Although I am not a neurologist, I do have MS, which makes me an expert, lol.

    Seriously though, check with your doctor. Maybe he/she can prescribe something that will help.
