It took my a couple of weeks to feel the improvement with the Neurontin. I started out at 300 but it wasn't enough. 600 is my dose and it works really well for me. I hope it does for you too. Just be prepared to feel really drowsy about 3 hours after you take it. I take it in the evening and I sleep like a baby.
Don't feel weird about using your GP for refills. That's what he's there for. He should be your primary doctor for medication refills.
Setting limits at work. Very important. Set them early and don't let anyone take advantage of you! Be firm in making it known what you can and can not do. Don't be wishy washy with the tasks that you can't do. It will likely come across as looking like, "Gee, she said she can't do that but she's doing it anyway. Guess her pain and problems aren't that bad...." Make your task list black and white. No gray! Then no one will question you. That has worked for me!
Good luck Trish! I hope it all goes really well for you and you can get your pain relieved and your diagnosis made,
