Hi. I am not sure that I have any suggestions for you. I feel like I am in the same boat as you.

I have been thru 7 spine sugeries; which includes putting in a spinal cord stimulator and removing it since it didnt work.

I had gone thru an EMG and it showed severe nerve damage in the neck and low back; severe arthritis and neuropathy probably due to both the spinal issue and the diabetes.

As to my legs I have had severe numbness in my left leg from the knee down. It is there 24/7. I have issues with cramping in my legs. Recently I have noticed numbness in my right leg as well. I get what feels like pins and needles in the foot/toe area. I have loss of balance issues as well. I have not fallen as of yet but it worries me that one day I will.

I tried neurontin several times. First time at a very high dosage of 3000 or 36oo mg. I cant remember which one. then tried a lower dosage of 300 mg I think. Again cant remember exact dosage. Either way the neurontin was ineffective for me.

I am now on hydrocodone and tizanidine. It does take some of the edge off at times. But the feeling of numbness in my legs never ever goes away.

With the nerve damage I have not sure at this point that anything can be done. Nerves as far as I know cannot be regenerated.

Seems like conditions is getting progressively worse.
