Hello @pitepalten and welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I am sorry to read about your pain and difficulty especially at night when you are trying to sleep. You will notice that I have also added your post to the Neuropathy group where you can also find another conversation on Allodynia, which @no1likemo mentioned he has. In fact, I've linked you directly to another member @gwen4 who shared a very similar experience to that of yours.

- Allodynia:

Can you share a bit more about what your doctor said after receiving the results of your nerve test? Did he/she have any next step recommendations or make mention of Allodynia being a possibility?

I’m going back next Thursday. He just said take b12 during the last meeting. My family physician prescribed Symbalta. It has helped me sleep a little better. Hopefully that continues. Just a few days since I started. One other symptom is my legs feel tired. Overall, I don’t feel that tired considering I don’t sleep well. I have always been healthy and in good shape. I have never taken any medicine in my 60 years on this planet. I’m never feel sad or depressed so I’m taking it in stride. I need to stay around for my kids! Thanks for the comments, Lars.
