Help with edema after Gabapentin
My daughter has Hashimoto’s, vitiligo and chronic pelvic pain. The Hashimoto’s is under control with medication. The vitiligo seems to be in remission. Actually pelvic pain is even almost gone. But when she was in pelvic pain she took gabapentin for two weeks. It was the third time she had tried taking this medication and the third time she got edema from it. Every other time the Edema went away when she stopped the medication. But this time it has been five months since her last dose. The Edema is in her hands and feet and when they swell it’s very painful but not pitting. Has anyone heard of this? We have seen several doctors and they are just shake their heads and say it’ll probably go away. But it hasn’t. We have tried to call the mayo clinic to see if they could help….we are so distressed. I don’t know where to turn.
