Neuropathy: Anyone have any experience with gabapentin?

Posted by sjhedcon @sjhedcon, Mar 21, 2020

I have loss of feeling in my feet and tingling sensation. My doctor prescribed gabapentin. I read the side effects and decided not to take this med.
Anyone have any experience with gabapentin?

@rwinney

Good morning Linda. @lioness. I do not use any topicals except Topricin on occasion. My ingestable THC is 19:1. High thc at 19 to cbd 1. It's also an extra strength strain. I am very careful with it. I don't use CBD oil anymore.

I don’t use CBD anymore either.

It depends if you are using the leaves of the sativa or the Indica plant. I use THC from the Indica plant to help me to fall asleep at night. The Sativa leaf is better suited for daytime use because it is invigorating and gives you pep but does not make you high.

Hi @darlingtondoll. I'm not sure what my leaves are. I guess I could investigate. Never found specific definition of leaves in any of my paperwork.

…and it's here nor there but, I take 20:1 THC, not 19:1 as I mistakenly mentioned earlier. The product strength is 9.5mg. I'm thinking it's sativa leaves as I do battle drowsiness but never an invigorating feeling. That feeling comes from hydrocodone.

@rwinney So far the CBD I take during the day works fine for most of the pain if it gets bad I,ll take a Aleve with it . But at night I take a dropperful in my tea that helps put me to sleep its from the same company. I tried the thc twice and both times I had a headache. Hope your doing well today

I have never been at that stage because I already had severe Plantar Fasciitis and arthritis. Good luck

I don't know what State you live in, but Arizona requires a list of certain medical conditions and medications and has refused licenses to some people for many years now. I get it, but I don't think the state should be the one to decide or the MVD. Your doctor should assess your capabilities.

@ilovedoodie and all … The DMV clerk who told me that I couldn't have a driver's license if I was taking Tramadol said in a snippy tone: "A Driver's License is a privilege, not a right". I was so taken aback that I didn't have the wit to point out that: in America, our judicial system takes away people's privileges to punish them for crimes they have been convicted of. People's privileges are not taken away just because they have the potential to do harm. We all have the potential to do harm, should we all be punished right now? You do too – should your privileges be taken away too? Maybe it's a good thing that I asked for the supervisor instead of saying anything snippy back – the clerk kind of held all the cards.

PS, I'm from Los Angeles and we didn't have to list our meds to get a license there. My stepfather was still flying airplanes when he was in his 80's and half deaf; they didn't ask for meds for his pilot's license and they didn't do any hearing or eyesight tests either.

@pfbacon I just had a snippy DMV person I was in to get my real I.D. and just because she didn't like my marriage certificate from Pa and it was legal with the seal of Pa . she wouldn't pass me . I told her the seal was there but she rejected it on a technicality . So I dont have my real I.D. which to me is stupid anyway .

@ilovedoodie I wish I had a dollar for every time a message I'd spent a lot of time on just disappear, and I have no idea where to find it. So frustrating!

I don't think I've ever tried Tramadol. I'll look it up. I have a prescription for Clonazepam 1mg at bedtime and a second one as needed. It helps me to lie still in bed and I think it is limiting the nocturnal panic attacks. Those attacks are no fun at all.

I limit my coffee intake to a couple of mugs before noon.

@jimhd If I understood you correctly you take Clonazepam. Tramadol is an opioid. Clonazepam and opioids can have side effects. I know someone who was taking Clonazepam and after a surgery the doctor prescribed them Percocet. Those two together incapacitated that individual. They didn't have enough strength to get into bed on their own or get up and go to the bathroom on their own. Once the Percocet wore off they were fine. So, be careful if you take Clonazepam with any opioid.

@fredjan2016 – I'm honestly surprised that a doctor would prescribe opioids and Clonazepam at the same time. . .

REPLY

@fredjan2016 I am also prescribed Clonazepam, Tramadol, and Oxycodone. No issue

Hello @laurask. That is a alot of medicine but, I'm glad you are getting results and tolerating well. How are you feeling these days? Are you experiencing any new symptoms? Do you find relief from certain symptoms? Have you decided to try the neuropathy supplement protocol? I hope your day is pleasant. 🌺
Be well ~
