Hello All, Any one with Systemic sclerosis (SSc) having Neuropathy Pain? Can you please share your experience? I have severe Neuropathy pain in muscles of both legs. After trying so many medications including several control substances, my pain management doctor has found no viable solution. The best medications he found Gabapentin (up to 4800mg) along with Lamictal (Lamotrigine) up to 500mg which are very high dosage and cause severe drowsiness and dizziness. Appreciate any input.
