OK WHERE TO BEGIN. I'VE WROTE IN BEFORE-USE TO GO TO DR & GET CORTIZONE SHOT, ALLEGRA & ZANTAC & IT WOULD TAKE CARE OF IT. THEN IT WOULD COME BACK USUALLY BAD IN THE SUMMER. SO THIS SUMMER I GOT SUNBURNED & THE ITCHING CAME BACK WITH A VENGENCE. SO I STARTED DOING RESEARCH WITH SOME OF THE POSTS ON HERE & I DO THINK THIS BRACHIORADIAL PRURITUS IS WHAT I HAVE. IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE SUN DAMAGING THE NERVES IN THE ARM. WHY? I DON'T KNOW . SO I WENT TO DR THIS TIME ARMED WITH COPIES OF SOME POSTS & THE RESEARCH I DID ON BRACH PR. & SHE READ IT ALL & WAS VERY SYMPATHETIC. I TOLD HER WE ARE ALL DESPERATE FOR ANSWERS. SHE PUT ME ON NEURONTIN--IT IS USED FOR MANY THINGS, BUT FOR NERVE PAIN AMONG THEM. ALSO FOR FIBROMYALGIA. SO ASKED IF IT WAS LIKE LYRICA. MY HUSBAND TAKES FOR BACK & HEADACHES. IT MAKES HIM HE TIRED. SHE STARTED ME ON SMALL DOSES. I STARTED AT NIGHT. WHAT A MIRACLE, I FINALLY SLEPT ALL NIGHT. I USAUALLY GET UP AT LEAST 4 TIMES TO REPLENISH MY ICE PACK. I HAVE STARTED TAKING IT AT SUPPER TIME TOO & AT BED. IT HAS BEEN GREAT! WILL GIVE ANOTHER UPDATE AFTER I HAVE BEEN ON IT FOR AWHILE. ALSO MINE ISN'T AS BAD IN THE FALL & WINTER SO MAYBE IT WILL GO AWAY FOR GOOD !!! WISHFUL THINKING !!
