My GP prescribed Gabapentin since he feels I don't have PMR due to my blood work not being high enough, according to him the symptoms and reaction to Prednisone is not enough for a diagnosis. This is a nerve pain medicine used mostly for seizures and some arthritis, per dr. I was to take it at night and manage the pain with ibuprofen during the day. I only took it one night and within an half hour my heart was racing and I was dizzy. The dizziness stayed with me until after lunch the next day. I'm not taking it again, scary! Anyone take this med or heard of it? I am calling the pharmacy today as my GP is on vacation until the end of the week. I just wonder if this is a normal reaction or what they will tell me . I feel my inflammation in my joints and pain there too, not in my nerves. Does this make sense to anyone out there? I don't think I must be describing the pain to my GP correctly. I'm faxing my ppwk to the rheumatologist today and going to start calling them weekly as suggested to try to get in before Sept.
