Re: Pain!!

Try nuerontin, probably nueropathic pain. I have exact symptoms and it does help at times.

Re: Pain!!

I have the same problem. burning and aching in my legs. It really makes it hard to get to sleep at night. The neurontin seems to take the edge off of it.

Re: Pain!!

Nuerotin - takes the edge off - call your Doc.

Re: Pain!!

I recently tried Cymbalta for nerve pain and it really helps. Cymbalta is an SSRI antidepresent which also received FDA approval for nerve pain in diabetics. Talk to your doctor about it. Believe me it does help.
