Ice packs are my quick relief – heat increases the pain for me.
[QUOTE=Norman]He is taking gabapenten 900 mg a day. The burning sensation seems to get worse on nights that he has been up a long time with no nap breaks and if he takes a loratab, it finally subsides and he can sleep pretty good. I have knitted some things to go on his silverware because the metal of the spoon or fork feels like a knife cutting into his skin. Does anybody else have that sensation ?????[/QUOTE]
I have recently given in to using stronger pain medications… but nothing helps as much as the gabapenten did for me. But it is difficult to stay awake… Same with biofeedback. It helps the pain, but puts me to sleep.
