Neurontin Headache Causes and Reviews


Almost everyone has had a Headache. Headache is the most common form of pain. It's a major reason people miss days at work or school or visit the doctor.

The most common type of Headache is a tension Headache. Tension Headaches are due to tight muscles in your shoulders, neck, scalp and jaw. They are often related to stress, depression or anxiety. You are more likely to get tension Headaches if you work too much, don't get enough sleep, miss meals, or use alcohol.

Other common types of Headaches include migraines, cluster Headaches, and sinus Headaches. Most people can feel much better by making lifestyle changes, learning ways to relax and taking pain relievers.

Not all Headaches require a doctor's attention. But sometimes Headaches warn of a more serious disorder. Let your health care provider know if you have sudden, severe Headaches. Get medical help right away if you have a Headache after a blow to your head, or if you have a Headache along with a stiff neck, fever, confusion, loss of consciousness, or pain in the eye or ear.

Neurontin Headache Reviews

Wed, 03 Nov 2010
Started with a reaction to Neurontin 300 middle of May, 2010. I was prescribed Neurontin and Lortab. The next morning woke up with swollen lips and eyelid. Had previously taken each of these, but not within last year. First took me off of the Lortab, swelling continued, then took me off of the Neurontin, swelling starting resolving, then returned, developed an extreme tiredness, sleepiness. In ( end of June) developed a blistered mouth, non-resolving, and a swollen membrane in left nostril. Was put on Nasonex. In July (end Of) developed Bad Headache, extreme sore swollen throat, and swollen lymph nodes. Beginning of August, Dtr appointment, told mono like illness, streph throat test negative, mono spot test negative. Given Methlprednosine, and Augmentin. Got worse. Much worse. By third wk had swelling (water), from huge lymph nodes, and pain, burning, in my organs put on Acylovir. Sent to eye doctor, the virus was in my eyes, uritis? treated with steroid eye drops for 3 weeks, which probably saved my vision. At 4 weeks symptoms seemed to be starting to resolve...at 6 weeks starting breaking out in rashes and itching, and blisters on tounge. symtom fully back. new blood work showed chronic active EBV, and Active cytomegalovirus (the only two things tested for). In October diagnosed with Grade B esophigitis, sliding small hital hernia, diffuse erythema of mucosa stomach, intrahepatic and common bile duct dilation, colon diverticulitis, purpura, continued swollen sore throat and swollen neck glands. Now told eyesight will not return to pre viral state..permanantely changed. Also, some darkened skin pigments. Not sure what Medications caused what. sort of the perfect storm.. also, my grand daughter had been starying with me one or two days a week (in day care the other days) and got the swollen sore throat 5 days before I did). Now am going through all sorts of testing to make sure nothing else caused this... so that maybe, at some point, I can get some kind of treatment to make it go away. It is possible i have Chronic Immune disfunction syndrome (undiagnosed) from a previous menningitis. Also, the Chronic EBV was undiagnosed. If you have any suggestions, I would sure like to hear them at this point..
