Spondylolisthesis and DDD

Ok. I know quite a bit about gabapentin bc of my husband's nerve pain. He takes 900 mg a day. I'm not going to lie and bc of the new laws about narcotics gabapentin is probably the next best thing some people but not most. Gabapentin is like Lyrica with all the side effects. a cause my husband to have restless leg syndrome plus he felt like lightning was going down his back and legs. Especially if he took a couple more than his normal dose. I also have gabapentin for my arthritis in my fibromyalgia and endometriosis. It did almost the same exact thing to me plus it's made me feel like I had something sitting on my chest at night. And it caused us both to have nightmares. I remember correctly that during the day it actually felt like you've been drinking but you haven't kind of like a easy fogginess in your head.trazodone has probably been one of the best sleeping medications to help your legs rest. If you have any more questions please message me back.

Hi, sorry for the slow response. I'm still trying to figure out my way around here. I've decided absolutely no more Gabapentin, that one dose was an absolute nightmare.
I had opted to try PT one more time, but have changed my mind.
I'm starting over with this, going to seek out a referral to a pain specialist and take it from there. Especially after I was told to keep taking the gabapentin anyway.
Thank you for your response. I appreciate it so much.
