Small fiber neuropathy

The only medication that gave me total relief for a short period of time is prednisone and I’ve only done it once given all the negative side effects. For anyone reading this – be careful with gabapentin. I was on it for a year and it only provided limited relief and as time went by, it worked less and I have to take more. It’s VERY difficult to get off those drugs – they are addictive. I went cold turkey and that was not fun. I’ve tried every med you listed. I am choosing to live with the daily pain (marijuana had the same effect for me as you). I have SNF and something else yet to be diagnosed. I also have lesions on my lower spine. 4 years before they did a skin punch test while symptoms got worse and worse. What an awful journey!

I was on prednisone 40mg and it did nothing for me. I’m going crazy to get some relief of the burning sensations and numbness around my upper stomach.
