Neurontin did not help me at all. Nor did the son of Neurontin, Lyrica. However, Cymbalta did help with not only the odd sensations, but also with the pain. I would not give this medication up without a real fight. Keeping your feet elevated seems to help me too. I find foot soaks in warm, not hot, helpful sometimes. Massaging them also helps - having someone else massage them is even better!!! I have never found any over the counter topical ointment or creme that helped at all.
Good luck in your search.
