Paresthesias, tingling, and itching? 😲😭

Feb 16, 2015 8:30 AM

Has anyone who uses Gabapentin or Tramadol ever experienced paresthesias, tingling, or itching?

I do. But it's much better with the Gabapentin then it was without it. Every once in a while I have a flare up and my whole body feels like pins and needles (I had a post about that a while back). It happens about every six weeks and I haven't been able to determine a pattern yet. The Gabapentin definitely helps to calm my crazy nerves. I have some itching but since I also have Psoriasis it's hard to pinpont the cause since the itching coincides withe areas mostly affected by the Psoriasis.
