nerve pain

Can anyone tell me what they do when woken in the night by really really painful stabbing in the leg that causes it to jump every 10 seconds. This can last all night and the next day and is exhausting. My consultant gave me amitryptaline which helps keep it at bay but when I get it nothing stops it at all as it’s nerve pain and even the strogest pain killers do nothing. Any one else get this??

hi yes i have had this ended up in A & E I now take Gaberpentin and it has taken it away completely, I was taking 900mg each day, then my Neuro told me to doublw it to 1800mg, it took the pain straight away. Hope this helps you
