I'm currently taking Gabapentin. It helps with the burning, but I have brain fog and memory problems on it. Docs have suggested trying Lyrica. I am open to it, but don't want to jump around on meds if I'm just going to have the same issues... I'm pretty sensitive to meds, and it seems like if there's a side effect I'll get it.
I'm only 24 and am trying my best to improve my life. It's so hard to get straight information from doctors, so I would appreciate any info you might have, especially if you've taken Gabapentin and another anticonvulsant so you can compare. But all accounts are helpful!
Sending you all lots of (gentle) hugs!!!
