My 9 yr old son has neuropathy (not sure what type as of yet) his neurologist has just prescribed him gabapantin, which after reading the side effects I'm concerned about giving it to him ?? we have been fighting doctors since he was 4 that there was something wrong with his arms and legs and after a very long tiring battle we are finally getting somewhere.
My boy suffers with sharp stabbing pains and his knees and calf's swell up to ridiculous sizes! He has trouble walking very far as it leads to uncomfortableness straight away and intense pain later. The only thing that helps a little bit is hot water bottles with no covers on the effected ares (and even then he says it isn't hot enough all tho it burns me!) Anybody have any handy tips on how to make him more comfortable as pl paracetamol and ibraproufen dosent help? Also anyone else who has taking the drug he has been prescribed could give me their opinions on it would greatly help
Tha ks guys xx
