Anyone here with this side effect. I heard from the Dr. it's common, but it is in my large muscles, l(like my joint aches weren't enough.) I didn't want Neurontin 3x a day, so they ordered something else. I let you all know more when I do. Tomarrow 23 week PCR being drawn, hopefully I am UND.

I had aches just in the beginning of tx - bone though. Then sailed thru tx. After tx had what I thought was neuropathy with numbness really bad in hands feet and lips. It now has completely gone. It lightened up little by little until I didn't feel it at all (recently) ...

Good luck with your PCR!!
