I am glad to hear it's something not too serious...
I find it really strange that he would rather start you on a prescript
ion for a medicine than do a very easy shot of cortisone and ibuprofen...Neurontin is not an 'as needed basis' type medicine...It takes times to wean off this medicine once you go on it..so please just be aware and read up on this medicine..As well as it can cause extreme dizziness in the beginning so please do not drive and be careful when first taking it..
It could work very well for you as it's meant for nerve pain...but it's usally prescribed mostly for damaged nerves like with disc issues or Fibromyalgia...so..not trying to 'one up' your Dr..LOL...it just seemed like an odd way to go about
I certainly hope that you can get some relief, since that is the goal...keep us posted..
