i have severe nerve pain due to another issue and my doc and I are having a great deal of trouble finding a medicine that works for nerve pain but does not make RLS worse. I am presently on 1200 mg. gabapentin, 30 mg. Cymbalta and 10 mg Amitriptyline. My RLS has been fine with these meds even tho the Cymbalta and Amitriptyline usually have an adverse effect on RLS but the nerve paid is still awful. Tried increasing the Cymbalta to 60 mg. but legs and arms went crazy. The doc suggested Tegretol but the side effects look really scary. I've also tried tramadol but it didn't help the nerve pain. Any suggestions?
