I have the exact same problem/ symptoms. My neurologist doc did prescribe gabapentin for last few months.. No improvements so far. I did meet neurosurgeon as per the suggestion of my neurologist. He says nothing he finds from my MRI, needs his attention. Now I'm back to my neurologist, she is saying she don't know what to say. She thinks it may be due to depression issues & prescribed "amitriptiline hcl". This burning sensation in my feet & lower back is annoying as hell, especially when i have to sit & work.I'm worried that something is not right with their diagnosis. She is treating in trial/ error basis. One thing though, I was on a cruise trip for a week, that's when I felt the symptoms least(almost none) in last few months. When I back from trip, symptoms came back.
Did you find anything helpful? How are you now?any improvements?View Thread
