Numbness (Parathesia) + Tingles/Burning
All these words to describe discomfort. Yesterday, I had to get off my feet and get into a lounge chair for an hour to get some relief. The Neurontin does nothing for this condition. I will probably ween off them. My doctor stares at me when I describe the following to him.
I tell him this: “Remember when your leg fell asleep? You had numbness and tingling. He nods yes. Well, “this is the way I feel all the time,” I said. He stares. Is there any medicine for this? No, he says. I leave scratching my head.
NO MEDICINE FOR NUMBNESS AND TINGLING. MY GOD, I SAID TO MYSELF. THEY DON’T KNOW HOW TO TREAT THIS ILLNESS.
