I'm betting this is the forum where the gabapentin experts hang out....I was diagnosed with Undifferentiated Connective Tissue Disease and insterstitial Lung Disease last year, and have been taking hydroxychloroquine and prednisolone ever since. This has worked well for my lungs and swollen joints etc, but I have developed extreme fatigue and weakness. Recently, my rheumatologist has suggested that I may have developed FM.
He believes that my fatigue could be remedied by improving my sleep quality. My fatigue has improved a bit since starting on amitriptyline (up to 30mg), but it remains a big problem.
He has now prescribed gabapentin to further improve sleep quality. However, I am nervous about taking yet another powerful medication, especially as I have NO PAIN symptoms.
Any thoughts or experiences would be very welcome.
