My wife is 72. She has a dormant case of MS and was removed from MS Drugs. One of her few symptons was an "electric" sensation in the left leg. Her prominent Chicago neurologist prescribed Neurontin. Dosage 300 mg twice a day. Not clear how much this has helped the sympton. Until recently her bone scan were normal. The last one showed a density decrease referred to as osteopenia. Fosonex was suggested. She does not want to take that drug for the well known side effects. The question is whether the Neurontin should be discontinued. There seems to be conflicting on-line material about the relation between Neurontin and osteoperia. Also what type of medical specialist would best to be consulted. We live in Chicago and Miami.
