    The low back pain is less of an issue than it once was. However, the 'hip' pain and numbness/tingling in the leg (mainly calf and foot) has taken over as the main issue. The back doctor suggested to me when I first went to see him about a year ago, that I should take Gabapentin. No way, not taking any drugs, especially something that affects the brain. Side effects could be grogginess, etc. I don't need any help in the fogginess/forgetfulness department, thank you very much. His comment back was that if I didn't address it (with the meds) that the nerves would start to send signals to my leg always even if/when there wasn't an issue (don't recall exact words but that was the gist of the comment).
