Gabapentin Abdominal Pain Causes and Reviews


Your abdomen extends from below your chest to your groin. Some people call it the stomach, but your abdomen contains many other important organs. Pain in the abdomen can come from any one of them. The pain may start somewhere else, such as your chest. Severe pain doesn't always mean a serious problem. Nor does mild pain mean a problem is not serious.

Call your health care provider if mild pain lasts a week or more or if you have pain with other symptoms. Get medical help immediately if

  • You have abdominal pain that is sudden and sharp
  • You also have pain in your chest, neck or shoulder
  • You're vomiting blood or have blood in your stool
  • Your abdomen is stiff, hard and tender to touch
  • You can't move your bowels, especially if you're also vomiting

Gabapentin Abdominal Pain Reviews

Sun, 11 Sep 2011

lower abdomen pressure, blurred vision, double vision, dizziness.

Tue, 01 May 2012

Has anyone experienced Ischemic Colitis after taking higher doses of Gabapentin?  The episode started with guteral pain in my left side of my abdomen. The diarrhea commenced for three hours, then ten hours of BLOOD STOOLS. NOT bloody stools, this was JUST BLOOD in the stool. I had thirteen stools in ten hours with only blood. Then my hsuband arrived home and took me to the emergency room. I had been writhing in pain on the bathroom floor.

 This was very frightening and draining, since my mother died of colon cancer at age 35, and my brother had Crohn's. HOwever, I then was admitted to the emergency room, and been given medicine to counteract the symptoms. The Dr did not want to admit it could be the Gabapentin,but I feel strongly it is. I have NEVER had anything like this in my life, and reading the small print on the pamphlet from the rx, colitis may be a very rare negative effect of taking Gabapentin. I am rare.

I have annual check-ups at the MAyo clinic, so my health had been clean as a whistle last year. There were not indications of disease brewing on the horizon. I am up to date on all colonoscopies, endoscopes, and general full checkups. They would know if something were amiss 'down south'.

I was given the Gabapentin for nerve pain three years ago, after a spinal, right leg foot injury. After years of pain, one will try anything. HOwever, the side effects of this higher dose(900mg 3 x daily) for me were debilitating. I was in the hospital for two days, but feel perhaps I will not be completely myself until I get myself off of this nasty drug. That is how I feel anyhow, and I have the photo of the blood to show. NOt Pretty.
Drugs are given so quickly-nobody wants to wait out their life with pain. It is awful. We do not want to live like that. How many generations before us had the same levels of pain, and could only choose to bear it or not bear it.

Hello,
I've been taking a cocktail of meds for 9 years to help treat acute nerve pain from a severe Brachial Plexus nerve avulsion C 7, 8, T1 and Spinal cord injury.
Medications: Gabapentin 3600 mg., Methadone 100 mg. , Baclofen 20 mg. every 8 hours.
These meds keep the pain intensity down to a steady biting, stinging,aggravation with extreme spasms
about 30 times a day.
The side-affects from Gabapentin for me are simply mild groggy when I first take the meds. My heart goes out to Kathy dealing with her depression, by the way is fueled by her Chronic Pain not Gabapentin.
The side-affects of Chronic Pain are losing parts of your life style that you ENJOY such as 1.Gym. 2.Socialize with friends. 3.Work and anything else you can't do as well because of Pain.

I was taking 1200 mg of Gabapentin for bi polar a couple of years and had side effects of sominence, periferal edema, unbalance, fuzziness between me and reality, loss of memory, shankiness in my hands. I know this sounds bad, but it stopped my anxiety, random talk in my had, I was able to relax more.

My doctor was ignorant of the side effects of this drug so I had to educate myself and take action. I reduced the mg to 600mg per day. 300mg morning and 300mg night and the side effects have lessened. I feel much better. I think each person reacts differently to medications and the patient has to be the final arbitor.

i HAVE HAD SERVER LOWER BACK PAIN, KNEE PAIN, AND MY FEET HURT AWEFUL LIKE i HAVE RUN A MARATHON 600 MG 3 TIME A DAY WHAT SHOULD I DO

Tue, 12 Oct 2010

I just started taking Gabapentin for visual, auditory and tactile hallucinations. I've been on it four days and it seems to be working....fewer hallucinations. I was hospitalized last week to determine the cause of my hallucinations but my doctor was unable to give me a difinitive answer. He feels they are of either a psychiatric or neurologicalorigin.

I'm a big fan of Gabapentin and I hope it works for me. It worked wonders for my daughter in 07 when she had spinal fusion surgery fior scoliosis. She was in a study (she got the actual Gabapentin) to determine how effective Gabapentin is in treating spinalsurgical pain. My daughter hit her morphine (?)button less than other pattients receiving a Gabapentin placebo.

Thu, 19 May 2011

I am on minor dosage of 100mg, three times a day, for nerve pain, plus taking clonazepam for myoclonic jerks and zopiclone for sleep disorder.
The day after starting Gabapentin, constant and debilitating auditory musical hallucinations (which I have been suffering from for over a year and for which no underlying cause could be found) ceased immediately. =-O
My nerve pain decreased to about 1/4 of what it was.
I don't plan on discontinuing Gabapentin any time soon.
