This from a person that has suffer from cold weather damage while in the Army. If you have a tingle or if your ring and pinky fingers are tingling ( like they have fell asleep) when you are using the computer you may have nerve damage. There is a nerve that you are pressing on that is in your elbow area that sends that zinging feeling to your fingers, please go see your doctor and talk with him/her so you can know what it is and how to take care of it.
I take 3000mg neurotin, but I still have trouble sleeping!
Neurontin (gabapentin) is an anti-epileptic drug, also called an anticonvulsant. It affects chemicals and nerves in the body that are involved in the cause of seizures and some types of nerve pain.
If you do still have pain that significantly affects your sleep, you may need to ask your doctor for stronger painkillers, such as oxycodone
