Did you mean burping or other ways of “passing” gas?
Yes the pain of shingles is terrible. I was in the hospital for 5 days. Mine didn’t break out. My grandson had then after he can home from Afghanistan while serving with the Marines. He he had them on his forehead. He said he felt like Mike Tyson had belted him. Gabapentin does help. I just don’t know all the side effects.

HAZEL, I wish there was something, but what?
I don’t know, but I hope there’s something. Yesterday and today I’ve been pain free! I have no idea what I’m doing differently, if anything. So I’m enjoying not hurting. Had coffee with a friend who also has pain issues. It’s her back that gives her problems. She’s going to have surgery soon.
I have been on gabapentin for years !! Never linked it to any specific symptoms though , mainly because I take so may prescriptions. But periods of memory loss have been an issue AND no sleep AND no eating and AN INCREASAE IN PAIN but is this from the gabapentin or just an increase in pain? Have neuropathy from chemo, fibro, cancer pain, depression and some type of degenerative joint problem. I take over a dozen RX and some supplements. Will be looking forward to learning more about this issue !!
I've been taking gabapentin for 20 yes I'm up to 4000 mg a day I take for the pins and needles I feel in lower legs. I do stop for 3 days to get out of my system. You don't take for numbness as I seen someone say in another post. It's great stuff the other meds either depress me or zombifies me.
I take 600. Mg of gabapentin a day for pain after hip replacement but it helps very little. I just started 100 mg disclofenac pills once a day and it is helping me already.
I take a pilll to lessen stomach irritation,hope it works,got a 60 day supply.
That's because gabapentin don't help that sort of pain it's for nerve pain. Like fibromyalgia diabetic nerve pain.
That's good everyone thinks pain meds stop the pain . Pain meds stops on average stop 30percent of the pain the rest is weather, food we eat and things like heat or cold therapy.
@battlewes Gabapentin reacts in people differently I have fibromyalgia and it didn't help me at all but some of my neuropathy friends take it and it does the best thing that helps me is a product called Fibro-Malic More types of minerals .
I couln’t take it – I was allergic to it; my mouth started swelling and throat started closing. Take Cymbalta & a compound cream my dr. Prescribed. Nothing really seems to help completely. Just learning how to live with it like everyone else. I’m sorry for what you’ve experienced.
The problem I have with Gabapentin, it makes me feel "like a zombie", I have no energy at all, just sit in my chair most of the day. I just feel like it's too much "work" to get up, let alone do anything. A friend has had the same problem, so his wife, a nurse, took him off of it.
@noreenf I was on Gabapentin and had the same lack of energy I,m a nurse and went of it then told Dr.
