Since backing off to the 2X a day dose of the Gabapentin, I haven't had anymore twitching! I have also noticed that the burning and stinging pain in my hands is much less, and they even tingle less than before. The shards-of-glass joint pain is still ever present, however, and my skin is feeling very tight today.
This morning I looked down at the hand in my lap and jumped because I didn't know whose it was. They just don't look like my hands anymore. I don't like that. I really liked how my hands looked before. They were one of my favorite features. Plus I gesticulate with my hands so much when I talk and now that I can't move them I feel like I'm moving my arms around with dead fish flopping at the ends of my wrists. Not what I'm going for.
