Peripheral Neropathy
Feb 6, 2013

My right arm feels like it has electricity running threw it constantly and gets numb. I take Gabapentin 300mg 2x a day and vicoprofen 7.5 twice a day with tyanol. I've used the TENS unit and it only makes it worse. I'm trying to see a rheumatoid specialist because my mother has Sojerns, and my father has Lupus in his lungs. It is very localized and I wondered if Peripheral Neopathy also happens always that way. Sincerely yours: Dr. Keith
