@dcduke, glad something works somewhat for you. Have you tried CBD at all? Gabapentin caused dizziness and vertigo (not the same) for me for a year in which I was seeing a P/T specialist. It stopped on its own and have not had it come back so far. Other side effects have come and gone over time, now just dealing with the SFN.

Yes, CBD helps me cope with pain. I take CBD sublingually–one type fast action and longer lasts longer. I have the awful pricking, burning sometimes in fingers, thighs to toes, and. the only thing I have found that helps Is CBD ointment. I have tried several brands, but they often add herbs that irritate the skin. I have settled on Mitchell's Ointment, which stops the worst of the burning almost immediately and last 6 hours or more. One tip. Try to put on a couple hours before socks and shoes–cuts down some friction. If you are not as sensitive I recommend Lazarus Ointment that is cheaper and 50% more CBD–and you may qualify for discounts. Good Luck.
