Gabapentin Pain Causes and Reviews


Pain is a feeling triggered in the nervous system. Pain may be sharp or dull. It may come and go, or it may be constant. You may feel Pain in one area of your body, such as your back, abdomen, chest, or pelvis. Or you may feel Pain all over, such as when your muscles ache from the flu.

Pain can be helpful in diagnosing a problem. Without Pain, you might seriously hurt yourself without knowing it, or you might not realize you have a medical problem that needs treatment. Once you take care of the problem, Pain usually goes away. However, sometimes Pain goes on for weeks, months or even years. This is called chronic Pain. Sometimes chronic Pain is due to an ongoing cause, such as cancer or arthritis. Sometimes the cause is unknown.

Fortunately, there are many ways to treat Pain. Treatment varies depending on the cause of Pain. Pain relievers, acupuncture, and sometimes surgery are helpful.


Gabapentin Pain Reviews

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 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.

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.

Thu, 10 Nov 2011

I was prescribed 900 mgs. of Neurontin three times per day by my surgeon because of leg Pain and back Pain five months after a double fusion surgery (redo of lumbar L4-L5/S1) and a decompression of a pinched nerve. The doctor said that I now have indication of scar tissue and inflammation in the nerve in my right leg which has been my problem for almost four years. Although the pharmacist said that that was a very high dosage and I am a smaller woman--110 lbs., I took it with the 600 mgs. plus a cut one to make 900 mgs. After the fifth day, I was so dizzy, I could not stand up. My husband took my blood pressure and it was very low the whole day. I have gone back to 600 mgs. three times/day but my surgeon said that could not have caused my problem. Since getting off of the 900 mgs., I have not had the dizziness, except when I bend down.

I also have had no success with a number of antidepressants that I have tried through the years. I have been on Neurontin during most of that time. Could Neurontin have an affect on the efficacy of the antidepressant? I have also become suicidal so I am off of the latest antidepressant. Now I feel irritable and so sad that I cry all the time. I don't want to go back on another antidepressant, but maybe the Neurontin is the problem. I am just confused and miserable. HELP!!
