    Definitely neuropathic pain. I've been taking 75mg of Lyrica 3 times a day and it has helped.

    I take Neurotin and methadone but the pain is still a sob! I've tried many things over 14 years but nothing new in the fast 4.

    Excellent descriptions adi. I have to say, I have experienced all of them. Generally mine is a mix of neuropathic, central and musculosketel. With a touch of visceral for flavor. I must say tho'

    is the EASIEST to put up with. At least it makes sense!

    My musculoskeletal pain is made worse by immobility. ESPECIALLY my hips, holy cow. I think that where they took the chunk out of my hip, the bone kept growing. It sticks quite a ways out now. It's mildly painful. But the hip joints, if I don't stretch them well and often, are excruciating.

    I do see where musculoskeletal pain of the overuse variety would be made worse by movement.

    I was sitting here tonight, thinking wow this left big toe is hurting unusually bad, and my toes hurt bad every night. Looked at it-It had a blister on the end. I can't feel heat, and today when I was cleaning with a little steamer I must have burned it. Probably touched the hose with my toe, duhh. I'll remember to wear shoes in the future!

    That must be why I suddenly got to feeling pukey this afternoon. I'd burned myself and didn't know it. These bodies are a constant guessing game.
