I have had BP for about 13 years, it went undiagnosed until about 3 years ago when I heard a doctor talking about it on NPR and went to see a neurologist. Mine is typically on the right arm and horrible during the summer months at night which in SoCal is many months. Ice temporarily helps. I have been taking lyrica for the past 3 years and that has provided the most relief I have found. Right now I have BP on my left arm which is atypical for me and even at 150 mg the lyrica isn’t helping as much as it has the past few years. I usually take 50 mg at night during the cooler months and up to 150 mg at night and 25-50mg in the morning during the hotter months. It is an awful disorder! I used to wake up scratching 3 times a night. Lyrica has been very helpful, I may just need to increase the dose this year. I have a tens type unit and will give that a try as well.
