I have just been recently diagnosed with CFS. This is my first time ever to post on a website!

I was taking Elvail and it made me feel so much better, but I gained 9lbs in a little over a week. Today, my doctor put me on Neurotin. I wanted some feedback from anyone who took it, how it made you feel? What difference it made in your pain? Did it help or hurt memory/brain fog issues and did you gain weight?

Thank you-

Welcome Suffering to the forum.  I'm sorry to hear you've been diagnosed but you will find great support here.  I've not been on either of the medications you mentioned so I can't help you.  I improved when my Dr (who's also a Naturopath) made me do a liver cleanse and took me off sugar and dairy.  I started to improve within days (I was at the stage where I couldn't shower without collapsing).  I included Magnesium and other supplements and was getting Vitamin B injections.  I've since gone back on sugar and a little bit of dairy and all the symptoms have come back so I will be taking myself off it.
I wish you the best of luck in your journey to become well again.
Cheers  Lou
