Hi everyone. I'm new here, so please forgive me if this topic has already been covered. I've been living w/sciatica from piriformis syndrome for 8 years now. I didn't find out all the things that could have been done for conservative treatment (i.e. trigger point massage, Trp. injections) until the problem had become chronic. Because of this, I've been on Neurontin for the pain all these years. Every so often, I'd have to titrate the dose to get the same pain relief. Now, my doc says I'm at the maximum dose, and, alas, the pain is creeping back again. I'm seeing the doc tommorrow to see what else can be done. Does anyone else have this problem, & if so, what do you find helpful? Any info will be greatly appreciated, & thanks in advance!
