Thanks for any input!
I took Gabapentin for 1 1/2 years for nerve pain due to a motorcycle accident. 400 mg 3 x a day. Took the edge off a bit but did not get rid of all the pain. I started seeing a Acupuncturist and he said it was causing most of my pain then. Have been seeing the Acupuncturist for about two months now and am off the Gabapentin completely and the pain is greatly reduced. The withdrawal from Gabapentin was pretty brutal also.
