RLS like Symptoms
I have occasion, daily, where all my limbs, scalp, and main body has a stinging, burning feeling similar to when a Fire Ant bites.  Doctor has ruled out RLS but does not know what it is.  Prescribed Gabapentin and that seems to do the trick.  However, would like to know what it is specifically, so what Doctor Practice should I contact - and possibility of addiction to Gabapentin?

I did some reading into Gabapentin and it sounds like exactly the type of medication you need.  It is used to treat burning sensations, hot flashes, restless leg syndrome, tingling and numbness.  It has a low addiction rate, but it should not be stopped cold turkey.  A slow taper is recommended for any person wishing to come off it.
