Good Day everyone,
 
As most of you know I am sure I am pretty much now symptom free on good days which is about 25 days a month. I do still use eye drops in the morning when I first wake up but dry mouth is gone and dry skin gone no more rashes etc taking ldn. HOWEVER I still have this off and on electric shock, tingling type pain in my feet/legs that will start and stop for no reason. I get the odd jolt in my hands but nothing major I am wondering for those of you that may have this or any type of neuropathic pain what is your med of choice or way of dealing with it?
 
I am wondering with that med of choice does it take the pain away completly, dull it or or really not work at all?
 
Thanks for your responses I am going to see the neuro again on the 20th as I passed all the tests for neuropathy but it has to be something.

Hi Angela,

I had the electric shock sensations . . . but I determined it was a combination of meds or going on or off those meds.

I did take neurontin (gabapentin) for nerve pain . . . I did sleep better while taking it . . . but it didn't relieve the pain enough to continue taking it.

I hope you get some good responses to your question.

Blessings!

Hmm Rosie,

That makes me question something I have recently reduced my plaquenil from 400mg to 200 mg with my DR advisement now that I have reduced symptoms. I wonder if that might be causing the problem.. Thanks

I wish I could remember the combo of meds back then. It was an anti-d, plaquenil, motrin, neurotntin and several other blood pressure, thyroid, dry mouth, things. But, at the time, I thought I had pinpointed the culprit and I just can't remember. Sorry. The shock sensation DID disappear after a few weeks when my body adjusted. But when I went back of the offending med, it happened again. confused I hope you can get this figured out.

Blessings!
