[QUOTE=CheyenneW;4248854]I am currently taking gabapenton 200 mg 3 times a day and it does seem to help but I do still have the extremely sensitive skin, especially on my upper arms. There is something else I noticed: my finger tips tend to get numb, especially when I am driving. This is a recent development. I do not have this problem with my feet but my feet do burn on the bottoms and they peel.

Sometimes the skin on the backs of my legs is very sensitive but the problem is not as severe as it is on my arms. Sometimes I have around my neck and on my back.

I am relieved that there are other people out there with this, even though I am not sure I have SFN. I have to ask my neuro if he can take the skin test to be sure. So far, people's descriptions of their symptoms come close to my experience. I still haven't heard of anyone having the extreme sensitivity to clothing on arms.

I am sorry for what you are all going through and it is scary that this thing progresses. My neuropathy has definitely gotten worse since this time last year.[/QUOTE]

200 Gabapentin 3x/day sounds like a low dose.

I've been taking 2,700-3,000mg/day since 1999. Re: numb fingers with driving... try wiggling your fingers & loosening your grip on the steering wheel. If you're wearing any rings on your fingers, remove them, that will relieve some pressure on your fingers.

Re: the clothing, again I think the higher dose will relieve some of that pain as well. How long have you been on 600mg/day?

Hoping this will help you some. This is one instance where I wish I couldn't say "I know what you're going through, been there, done that!"
