My doc diagnosed me with having Radial neurothopy in my right arm, but I still have to go for an emg to determine what's going on. Will gabapentin help with the pain.? It's a horrible constant burning, that I have never experienced before in my life. And if do, how long will It take to relieve my pain!
School lady; Yes this is what Gabapentin is used for as far as how long it well take to give you relief that really varies by person most start to feel a bit better within a week to 10 days. This is much more common than you know and this medication has helped so many because of the unknown about nerve pain. That can start out of the blue anywhere on the body hope that helps and it does the job for you.Don't be surprised it they up the dose your on a starting dose and many times it has to be increased slowly with the most benefits with the less side effects.Chuck1957
