Glad the neurontin works. RLS is a syndrome though, not a real diagnosis.
Did you have an infection of any kind prior to getting the nerve thing? Could have been a few weeks before the onset.
I have had this itchy prickly tingly sensation in my legs and arms and chest and sometimes feet. I finally went to a neurologist and he diagnosed a rare form of RLS (restless Leg syndrome) which only has these symptoms. He put me on Neurontin (gabepentin) and it cured it. Sometimes I get the nervouse legs too but rarely and more often it is the pricky stuff. thank god for Gabepentin which I usually take 300 mg at night but sometimes I need an extra 100 mg.
