For the last few months I've been having a horrible burning sensation intermittently over my body. Just before Christmas it got really bad so I visited my gp and she gave me some Gabapentin, 300mg, three times a day. She did tell me though that if my symptoms did improve it did mean that it was likely the pain was being caused by some kind of nerve damage. Since taking them the pain has been loads better. So now I'm not sure if this is good thing or not. The cramping/squeezing in my muscles has been better as well.
I've got a lumbar puncture next Wednesday. Not looking forward to it but I've had a gastroscopy in the past and nothing can be worse than that!! When I saw the neurologist at the beginning of November he told me that I have an abnormal MRI scan with over 30 high signal lesions in the white matter but the lesions were not typical of MS. The lesions were mostly in the frontal part of my brain. My evoked potentials in the summer were normal.
The unknown is so frustrating!! I just wish I knew one way or another.
