I have horrible nerve pain in my hands and fingers that is 24/7. I am desperate for some relief. Last October one doc told me not to take Klonopin because it increases nerve pain. This week one of my docs recommended starting again for anxiety, but I had forgotten why I had discontinued until I came home and looked it up. Does anyone have any info about this as I cannot find it in my searches.
Also looking for anyone with experience with stem cell therapies, using one's own cells taken from the fat cells. I am willing to try anything to get some relief.
How are you?
I have been taking klonopin for 2 months. I notice some tingling in my right hand but it could be from the carpal tunnel syndrome that I have for some relief I just my hand brace.
Klonopin doesn't cause nerve damage. You can't find it because it isn't so. Are you on lyrica or gabapentin?
I've taken Klonopin for my anxiety with great success. I've never heard of or experienced any problems with nerve pain. Recommend you try the Klonopin and and assess afterward.
Please be careful with going on Klonopin (clonazepam). Once on it, it can be very difficult to get off it. I would only take it for severe panic/agoraphobia. There are so many other things out there that are affective for things like GAD, or "anxiety." I don't want to see anyone have to go thru withdrawal sx's unless they absolutely have to. Please be careful. I've never heard of anyone taking it for "nerve pain" and I've never heard of Klonopin increasing nerve pain, either.
It may not cause nerve damage but it does exacerbate it. Tingling, crawling, numbness and pain are all side effects. Look it up on mayo clinics site.
It causes back pain & muscle pain and nerve pain.. Withdrawing is hell & also causes these side effects as well as high blood pressure & seizures.
