Just so you know the nighttime dose helped me curb the pain. My pain is not too intense during the day enough for me to take Gabapentin because I already have fatigue and I do not want to add to it.
I copied this from a Google search:
"It takes about a week for gabapentin to start reducing nerve pain, and two weeks for it to take full effect.
Source: Gabapentin for the Symptomatic Treatment of Painful Neuropathy in Patients With Diabetes Mellitus A Randomized Controlled Trial, Backonja et al. ( 1998).Nov 5, 2016"
Let us know how this works out.
And you're right about doctors. I learned everything from these communities and if I help others, then I am also giving back to our community.
Thanks John, and Merry Christmas to you and yours, too.
