Does the diagnosis help a little bit now that you know what's wrong and can treat it?
I took neurontin for about a year. It's fairly benign when it come to side effects (i.e. very few if any) and my doctor swears by it for pain management. Don't ever stop it suddenly because you'll feel like you've been run over by a train, you have to slowly ease off it. Other than that it was great.
Good luck and keep in touch.
The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future, or not to anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly. Buddha
