Hi @kraison1979, I agree the gabapentin helps with pain. I have neuropathy on the left side of my body from my forehead to my toes. Unlike you, I don’t have the uncomfortable feeling in my mouth. Since the gabapentin is not working, I would contact the physician prescribing the medication to try another method or medication. Talk about how you would prefer to handle the pain.

I wold just as soon not take anything. The most disturbing thing is the terrible numbness in my mouth and the majority of my tongue. i have lost much of my taste senses along with the numbing in the roof of my mouth; needless to say, I have burned the roof of my mouth numerous times while eating as I could not tell how hot some food was.
