Hi, you are not alone. I have random nerve pains for the last 15 months and until I read your messages I didn't know that anybody could relate to this problem. Neither doctors nor friends had ever heard of this.
I believe that my problem started with a fall on the back of my head during a downhill walk. I got up and went to my yoga class right afterwards because I felt okay. The next night I had vertigo so badly that I couldn't get out of bed and stand up. I crawled on the floor. After 3 occurences this problem went away.
About 10 days later I started having tingling and slight numbness on the left side of my face. Shortly after the nerve pains started. Sharp prickers randomly all over my body, sometimes sudden horrible stabs mainly on the back of my shoulder that feel like lightning striking. The latest additional symptom is the feeling of ants crawling on my skin.
MRI of the brain was negative as well as the EEG.
One neurologist/psychiatrist diagnosed me with having an anxiety disorder and prescribed Neurontin (gabapentin). I took 100mg in the morning and:confused: at noon and 300mg in the evening for months until now I had to up it to 200mg, 200mg and 400mg. Not even that works anymore. The side effect for me is drowsiness and memory loss so I hate to take more.
Walking and swimming feels good, stress and fear worsens it.

I wonder if all this is related to tingling in my right leg, which falls asleep when I sit for any length of time. It is not neuropathy, but what is it?
I found a partial remedy for that problem. Feldenkrais exercises are wonderful.
Thanks for reading all this. I would love to get responses and ideas.
