On fire

Oh my god my leg feels like its on fire, what a horrid symptom never had this before. What can I do to help it stop all ready taking gabapentin high dose It’s awfull it make me screen out in pain Jannine

You’ll need a top up of something with a different action, e.g. amitriptyline.

In the meantime, try ice packs - they really can help. Rather bizarrely, so can a heat pad, but I find ice is better.

Anything to distract you is good too - the brain can only focus on so many things at once - drown out the burning and it won’t feel so bad. Playing video games is a good one!

Thanks, it’s feeling a little better distraction has helped. Waiting to have all my medication reviewed after I had a repeat MRI on Wednesday of brain and spine. As I have moved and I have a new neuro he wants to review everything. Hope you are as well as you can be Jannine

Hi Jannine,

I’ve not experienced this one, doesn’t sound very nice :frowning:

Hope the med’s review sorts a few things out for you.
