Hello. My doctor is still trying to diagnose my symptoms but is leaning towards fibromyalgia pending the outcome of blood work. He has put me on neurontin and gave me some Darvocet but I have not been taking that because the neurontin seems to help with the pain. Among other symptoms, my hands and feet have been tingling extremely bad today! Is this normal because it is the strangest feeling and I am a little nervous. In addition, they feel swollen but dont really look it and I am having trouble with my dexterity. I was wondering if any of you have experienced this?
I had the tingling hands and feet really bad for a long time. My doc started me on the neurotin on a low dose and it didn't help at first. He finally got me up to 300 mg 3 x per day and it helps with that symptom for the most part. I am not saying it doesn't happen anymore but nothing like it use to. Now if I am having a really bad flare-up, it will get bad but it does eventually go away. One thing that I do that helps is I wear my shoes everyday because that seems to help with the tingling in my feet. I wear them whether I am having the tingling or not. It keeps my feet from hurting to bad. If I happen to sit down and put my feet up I may take my shoes off but not very often. Just thought I would let you know what works for me. Have a great day. Jenn
