Hi quilter, Normally, gabapentin is taken FOR the tingling or stinging sensations, but if you are getting this odd side effect, please tell your doctor. You could try Lyrica if Gabapentin doesn't agree with you. Both help nerve pain. Best wishes, and call that doc! Lara
I had it, but my nerve pain began going away. I talked to my pain management doctor and he encouraged me to keep on. The key word was talked to doctor. My pain went away and then I tapered off and was pain free.
