    Hello Angel,

    Thank You for up dating us about your current status. You know I am listening All the Time. Or rather, whenever Life ain't interfering. I do hope the Neurontin works to relieve your pain as well as control any possible seizures. Remember to give it 2 to 6 weeks. Eat Nutritiously! Note everything in your Journal.

    sounds like you & I need to find new Hobbies. One that doesn't strain our backs too much. Did your Dr recommend any exercises that you can do? To replace the gardening. I have a GF who has constant back pain, too. She has found that if she keeps moving around it ain't so bad. It's when she takes time out that it really hurts bad. But, yes, Like You she can't do any heavy lifting. Bending is near to impossible, anyway.

    Chat w/ us. Listen to others' & chat w/ them. Know I Am Here for You! Hugs

    Love Candi
