Hello @flowbluelady, welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. I'm tagging our moderator @kanaazpereira to see if we should move your post to the following discussion where it will have more visibility with members who share similar symptoms as your husband. You might want to read through the discussion and post other questions you may have.

I did find a couple of other links that may describe some of the symptoms your husband is having that are associated with MS.

Have you mentioned to the doctors that the gabapentin is not helping?

Thank you for the links. I will check them out. This is my first attempt at connecting with an online group. I look forward to connecting with others who migjt can provide helpful info.

Yes, the doctors know the gabapentin is not helping the symptoms I mentioned. They have played around with his dosage to see if it does. However, he continues to take it because it does help with other symptoms. His next appt is next month, and we will address it again.

Thanks again for your info.
