First let me say, i have two metal on metal hips that were poisoning me.  Right before surgery on one i started having tingling/burning feeling in all my fingers. 
after i had one hip replaced it got worse.  it spreads now down into my hands.
All blood work and tests show just a b12 deficiency.  I have been receiving treatments for three months, but nothing has budged on the burning/tingling feeling.  Dr diagnosed it as neuropathy and put me on gabapentin 300 mg,  Still no relief.

I dont know what to do and what it is, not a real concern from dr because he thinks it's just b12.  But I have a real problem.
I worked with paints about 5 months ago and one day got thinner on my hands but washed it off.  And that did not corrolate to the time this started.  I have gotten worse and this is going on for months.  don't know where to turn or how to get relief.
