That was 4 years ago. Three weeks ago I went to bed as usual and the next morning I woke up and my right arm was paralyzed. No movement at all. I was and am... 3 weeks later... In severe pain and have numbness off and on. I went to the ER and they checked for strokes and found nothing. Doctor referred to neurologist and they called and said my "condition wasn't sever enough for me to be seen by them". My PCP increased my gabapentin to 1000 4x a day. Is this dose safe? I have been to the er, my PCP and urgent care because today I wanted an answer of what exactly is the problem. They did xrays... Nothing. Is this nerve pain? Do I just have to live with it? Today the pain was so bad I nearly passed out. Does anyone have any advice or been in a similar situation? I can not put up with this... Help?
