Sorry that you are having such a tough time right now. If the tingling is happening more often, it may be that you have herniated the worst disc or yet another one. Have you looked at any of the dermatomes out there? It can show you which disc it might be by where you have the tingling and burning pain. That is usually caused by some pressure/compression on the nerves. I haven't taken Neurontin this time around, I got better relief with Lyrica. You might want to try that if the loopiness is too much for you to deal with. Lyrica can cause the same side effects but it usually goes away within a week of starting it.
I wish that I could sweep away all of the pain here, for all of us......
I'm glad that you came here though to share what you are going through. Sometimes just having someone who understands and empathizes helps far more than anyone can think it does.
Hang in there. I hope that you get some relief soon.

I've seen enough surgeons over the last few years.
