    Neurontin for Burning Hands, Anyone?

    I just had an MRI four months after my acdf on C3-C4 and the neurologist says things look good where the surgery was done. My motor skills returned shortly after surgery but I have a residual numbness and burning in my hands that isn't going away and gets worse the more I use my hands. So we are trying a slow buildup of neurontin. I have a friend who has been helped by neurontin but am interested in knowing if it has alleviated the burning sensation of anybody frequenting this healthboard. Thanks, Tom

    My NS prescribed me with 300 mg of neurontin because I was having a "pins and needles" feeling all over (I had ACDF on C5/C6 about four months ago. Now it feels like I'm getting pricked by a cactus all of the time, but I just started the neurontin less than a week ago. Has it helped you?

    Neurontin works, but I couldn't take it as it made me dizzy. Docs kept trying to get me to take it, but after 3-4 days, I would feel like I was going to fall down. Hope you have better luck with it.
