i been taking gabapentin afterwards lyrica as the doctor pre diagnosed me with diabetes, but the burning is still worst through out the day and night it never stop. i understand that my blood sugar is on dibetes diagnosis. but aside from this situation i got bitten by an insect in 2010 and got huge swelling on my upper forearm and has pulled out a dead muscle from the holes . by this time i went to the doctor and give me bactrim forte er , doxycicline, and i think ametriptiline it all subside the extreme pain from venom but after i finished taking doxycicline i experience pin prick pain on the affected area and a patchy pepper like kind of burn pain. after a year i start experiencing those kind of pain.
i am worried thatit will eventually destroy my leg. and i know i have diabetes but as i observe taking the nerve pain does not remove the pepper kind of pain. so i am thinking it is not the problem. I am thinking that this is an effect of the venom in my blood .
I havent went through blood laboratory exam to anylize my blood i just wish to know what kind of blood exam should i take that include a venom or lyme disease problem.
