Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern and would recommend taking Gabapentin or Pregabalin to help improve your situation. I would just advise starting in low dose and increase gradually the dose as tolerated, in order to avoid sedation, which is a common adverse effect of these drugs.

It is also necessary taking Vitamin B12 injection in order to help correct vitamin B12 deficiency, which is the main cause of your complaints.
