Was diagnosed with neuropathy in my feet bout two months ago and dr put me on gabapentin. Drug is work ing ok…only take three pills a day but now have some sort of rash or bites on my feet and legs. goes up to bout my knee on rt leg and on foot on left. have two red marks that look like bites up higher so can that be some sort of reaction to the meds? This is only new meds have gotten and just is weird. going to foot dr today and am going to ask him to switch the medication to something different anyway. But am just curious cause they itch like crazy. No changes in anything me and hubby use everyday…bodywash, shampoo, laundry detergent etc . Any help would be great. Thanks and hope everybody had a great fourth of july.

There is a website for celiac disease (mouseover the link "visit another community" above) and select "celiac disease" (the most serious form of gluten intolerance) login using your DC info.

I have not been on that site, but I would expect they'd have some good information for you there,

I pray you'll find what you need there.
