Wed, Feb 12 8:44pm · Side effects and benefits of Gabapentin in Chronic Pain

After lower back surgery I developed neuropathy in my feet and ankles especially at night. Gabapentin takes away the pain and cramps. I only need 300 to help. No problems.

When you open the utility door to enter the house the garage should be dark as the door should be closed. Even if you are working in the yard and are in and out ~when you enter the house through the utility door close the garage door each time. It can be opened again and you have to form a habit. Good luck and God bless.

You did what you could. Sometimes pain is so intense nothing can help. My husband had cancer metastatic on his vertebrae and nothing helped. I am sorry about the process you had to go through but at a time like that you grab any hope possible. Pray someday there will be an answer. God bless you.

Me also. I agree that it’s not a pain med but it relaxes my muscles which reduces my pain. After surgery works great.

No. Possibly the effects of the gabapentin had worn off?

Need to see a doctor. May have been an anxiety attack which makes it very difficult to breathe.

In my elder years I have learned that your body was made to function as a whole. If there is a malfunction in one area it affects the whole. It maybe small or great. There are some things that even doctors can not answer. We need to treat the whole body to treat the malfunction. That responsibility lies with us and most of the time I am not good at it. As the new year approaches I will redefine my journey to living as best I can with what I am. God bless and be grateful for a new beginning.
