Neurontin Muscle Spasms Causes and Reviews


Epilepsy is a brain disorder that causes people to have recurring seizures. The seizures happen when clusters of nerve cells, or neurons, in the brain send out the wrong signals. People may have strange sensations and emotions or behave strangely. They may have violent muscle spasms or lose consciousness.

Epilepsy has many possible causes, including illness, brain injury, and abnormal brain development. In many cases, the cause is unknown.

Doctors use brain scans and other tests to diagnose epilepsy. It is important to start treatment right away. There is no cure for epilepsy, but medicines can control seizures for most people. When medicines are not working well, surgery or implanted devices such as vagus nerve stimulators may help. Special diets can help some children with epilepsy.

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..
