Can you tell me if anyone else has reported Neurontin escalating pain
symtoms with Cutaneous Sensory Neuropathy? In my case it sure did and I wonder if for this particular type of Neuropathy anyone has documented
this happening using Neurontin for this type of problem?
Neurontin is a relatively new drug and was first introduced for epilepsy,
so our experience with it in the various neuropathies is in the early stages,
There have not been many large scale trials but practically every neurologist
has one if not several success stories with the use of Neurontin in
practically all forms of neuropathy, and many chronic pain syndromes.
On the basis of our experience here and from reviewing the literature
I have found numerous case reports of its use in all forms of neuropathic pain.
There is no case report to date on it use in the specific situation you
mention but since it is being used in a wide variety of situations I
am sure yours is not by any means the only case.
I am glad it worked so well for you.
