Thank you for the input,
The pain, burning and itchy sensation on the both thigh sounds more likely due to pinching of nerve. If the nerve is compressed in the spine, it can happen. Though on the both side is uncommon, but can be possible. When gabapentin does not relieve the pain, I think you will need an MRI spine to check the condition. The pinching can occur at the back spine. A consultation with a neurologist will be helpful here. Though there are few other causes of irritation of nerve like deficiency states, diabetes, thyroid
, nerve disorders like MS,neuropathies etc but nerve impingement sounds more likely. Blood tests, nerve conduction test etc. can be done. In addition, stretching, physical therapy
, TENs therapy, steroid injections can also be tried. Other medicines like lyrica, lamictal or antidepressants
like elavi are also used. Sometimes surgery can be needed if conservative measures fail.
Hope this information will help you.
Wish your early recovery.
