I am presently on 900mg of gabapentin and 1200mg of ibuprofen. The Dr’s have mentioned neuropathy. Unfortunately I have no insurance so expensive test I really can’t have yet. My symptons are: have difficulty going up and down stairs,difficulty getting up from chairs, my hands ,fore arms go numb and makes it difficult to use hands and causes a deep burning pain. When I go to bed my hips and thighs go numb and cause pain so I am turning all night. This happens on both sides. I have pain in my feetc. Sometimes shooting pains and sometimes up the back of heels which causes me to limp. Please help. These symptons still exist even on meds.
