The reason i picked Neurontin was not only because i wanted to research it but because it was the miracle drug they had just came out with in 2001 that helped my nerves and made me able to walk and kinda do everything again. What happened was I was in a bad motocross accident November 3, 2001, i was at the Victorville Motocross Complex and I entered a non-sponsored race and the first lap around I cleared the main double jumps in the front and the guy behind me overshot the doubles and i was already lining up for the triples and he landed right on top of my head with the case of his bike and smashed me into my bike, after they got color back in my face they loaded me into the ambulance and had to get me stable until they could move me into the helicopter which took me to Loma Linda where they pronounced me a a five which is about D.O.A. When the doctor met my dad in the waiting room the first thing he told him was hes got a bruised heart, broken neck, collapsed lungs, and our technology is maxed and hes probably not gonna make it!, they even had the funeral arrangement people there trying to work them a deal already. Then three days later they came back and looked confused my dad said and he was scratching his head while he told my dad, you know Doug its weird but after all the MRI's he had a broken neck...
