My endo seems to think that its not neuropathy, but my MD. put me on Gabapentin anyway. I don't know, it only bothers me at night when I'm trying to fall asleep.
My legs they kinda have a tingly, crawly feeling, that is really hard to describe. I like to call it spazzy! And it goes from mid thigh all the way down. Its not all the time though. I can fell it if I'm resting or still sometimes, but if I'm active, not really.
Sometimes I get a sharp pain in my foot like I've stepped on a tack or something like that. That is pretty uncommon though, maybe happens once a month or less.
Another problem that I've always had since a kid is that I shake my legs. Yea, I'm that annoying guy who was always taping his foot at the wrong time. But really its a nervous habit that I've never been able to break, so don't make too much fun of me! At least I usually have good rhythm! ;)
I've been on this Gabapentin for about a two months now, and I'm told its a really low dose, only 100mg 3 times a day. I'm not too sure if I like this med they gave me, because I read it can make you feel spaced out as a side affect, and I've really felt like that lately.
I don't know if is the fact that I can't seem to remember to take it 3 times a day, even though I still take the mid day one at night when I forget, I'm not really getting any relief from the spazzy legs, so I toss and turn for an hour or two, sometimes more. Its a rare occasion where I fall asleep in under an hour.
I just wonder if anyone else that has either "Restless Leg Syndrome" or Neuropathy recognizes my symptoms and can give me any pointers about how to describe them better to my clinicians.
