I have diabetic neuropathy which some nights I can't sleep because of the burning and tingling in my feet. At times it goes up my legs. I take gabapentin for it and it does help. I don't think I could take the pain if not for it. Thanks for sharing the info and I know it will help others.

I had that crawling sensation up and down my legs when I was losing so much sleep in trying to be a mom to four, and working full time too—-an hour or so of sleep in 24, does NOT cut it—especially over a long period of time!! I was YOUNG then and NOT diabetic, so guess a lot of things can cause that sensation. My family Dr said that it was "Nerves" so I TRIED so HARD to NOT be nervous—-hence the ensuing suppression and denial, caused mind issues———sigh——PR

That could have been RLS, that restless leg thing can't spell the other word.

My Dr was notorious for making me feel like everything was "all in my mind!" I know, I had to give him PERMISSION, but I was young and felt that I knew nothing——Dr didn't seem to believe me even then—-looking back, I was right!! But small consolation now!! haha—PR

All of the above except for the sensation of insects crawling on my legs. Thank God, because I would freak out. I hallucinated once (bad reaction to drug) that their were spiders all over and even when I closed my eyes I could feel them crawling on my…ughckk!! bad memory..

Thanks Mays for the information you provided. Very much appreciated.
