Hi I've been on gabapentin for almost 6 years along with a lot of other medication, my pain consultant suggested I come off gabapentin gradually over a period of 3 weeks. It's been a very tough 3 weeks, still in so much pain. I'm almost housebound as it is, however I've over the last 2 weeks I've noticed tingling in both legs from my toes to my thighs, I'm used to pins and needles however this feeling is like nothing like like. The only way I can describe is if you put a tens machine on the more you turn it the stronger it gets. Mine is just below the point of unbearable. It's keeping me awake, I can't sleep it's almost like having a heartbeat in your legs constantly throbbing. Is this a normal feeling, as I'm really worried. I'm back to see my consultant on Tuesday just thought I'd ask if anyone else has had this feeling.
