I Want To Chop Off My Thigh

I got diagnosed with Meralgia Paresthetica last year. The doctor gave me gabenpentin it worked but only lasted about 3 hours then I would have to take more , i was up to 3200 mgs. a day.. I lost 45 lbs. and I still had the numbness but the burning went away. I gained 25 lbs. back and it came back 100 fold it is so much worse. I have to lose weight and see if it will go away again , if not I 'm ready to have surgery. I can't take the pain and burning. I'm a waitress and I suffer everyday! Does anybody out there know anything I can do to get some relief?

Really Gabepentin actually helped you.. The only medicine that even takes the edge off for my meralgia paresthetica is percocet and that barely touches it but i don't want to take anything stronger, so i feel your pain and you are not alone.
