It almost sounds like you started with a form of Gullian Bare disease. It can cause a person to lose function of their arms and legs. Now it sounds like you are dealing with neuropathy. The burning sensation, cramps, shooting pains and numbness and tingling all stack up like it. If you have SFN it will not show on an EMG.

I myself started with pain at the bottoms of my feet, then numbness. The stabbing pains and burning came along later as I did not progress as quickly as you have.

Yes the gabapentin just masks the pain and such but with SFN that's about as good as it gets. I am on Lyrica which is in the same family and a narcotic pain killer.

A skin biopsy will show SFN if you have it, the only other option is a sural nerve biopsy but it is sorta invasive.

I wish you luck getting to the Cleveland clinic.
