I need to ask anyone who's had experience with nerve pain a question. I'm having much more lately. It's always been mostly in my legs, but somewhat in my arms as well. Lately it's much more in my arms and extremely increased in my legs. The pain is like a shooting, sharp pain that starts in one place and stops in a pretty straight path out from the beginning point. It shoots over and over and rests in the same place each time. The prob is it's really increased! Lots more and lots more often. I almost never have a time when it's not present now and it's in the oddest places. My ankles, shins, fore arms, biceps,hands and fingers, thighs and feet. Sometimes in or around my spine, but not as much. Ok, the question...I take Neurontin and last night had to take three of them. That's 300mg's total. I took two before bed and one in the night...prob about midnight. I slept til 11:00!!! I can't do that!! I was pretty tired when i went to bed, but even still i don't usually sleep that late. I know many have asked this before, but i never remember anything. Can u tell me what the other meds are that maybe I should ask for...that won't knock me out?? Thanks everyone!
