@margaretob Gee, I sure hope so! I hate what Gabapentin does to my brain.

@lioness You mention neuropathy in your thighs. Read this and see if it rings any bells: Meralgia paresthetica is a condition characterized by tingling, numbness and burning pain in your outer thigh. The cause of meralgia paresthetica is compression of the nerve that supplies sensation to the skin surface of your thigh.Jan 16, 2020

@johnbishop I've been working on getting a referral for a late-April or early-May appointment with Mayo's Pain Medicine department. I hope things are up and running normally by then.

Abstract
A drug-induced liver injury is one of the most common causes of acute liver failure. While acetaminophen is the most common etiology, other offending medications include amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, amiodarone, isoniazid, and fluoroquinolones to name a few. Gabapentin, a gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) analogue, has infrequently been reported to cause liver injury; however, the causality in the previous reports is contested. Herein, we report a gabapentin-induced hepatocellular injury in a patient without another identifiable cause for acute liver injury. Discontinuing gabapentin resulted in rapid reversal improvement in hepatocellular injury.

Keywords: gabapentin, hepatotoxicity, drug-induced liver injury

@johnhans Perhaps your neurologist can explain to you how information in the article applies to your case.
