After sever attack, switched meds

Since I lost my insurance I haven't been able to go back to see my neurologist. But, after a severe attack a week ago thursday, I called and told them I had been having pain for three weeks and I was in so much pain I could barely speak. I was crying, writhing in pain and screaming. He prescribed Gabapentin for the pain and I have been much better since. I think the other stuff I was on I either had built up a tolerance too or It just wasn't working anymore. (depakote cream) I am eternally thankful that my dr would help me out knowing I didn't have insurance. They are really a great office! I still have little shocks of pain and the migraines but ill take that over agonizing pain!
