Hello All,

Very sad to hear all the problems you are having. One year ago I was in a car wreck that severed the Alder nerve going to my left arm and hand. I have been taking between 80 to 120mg oxycodone/oxcontin per day along with 2,400mg of Nuerontin for chronic pain for the past year. The beginning of this month I found a natural means of controlling my pain and Nov 5th I quit taking Oxycodone and began weaning myself off Nuerontin. I have been off the Nuerontin for 5 days now. I must say I quit both of these drugs before I read anything about the withdrawal. It is a good thing I did not read anything because, from what I have read and how I felt for over 3 weeks now, I truly believe I came close to dying. I do not recommend anybody going through what I did and am still going through. Even with the symptoms I have left, itching and exhausted, I have not felt as good and alive as I do now for over 1 year. I pray this gives you folks trying to get off this stuff hope- it is worth it from my perspective.

I am over the hump now but have one nasty symptom left I am hoping someone might help me with. I have hives or a rash all over my body that started about 3 days ago. Boy do I itch and I am still so wore down I don't have the energy to scratch.

Can anybody help me?
