Tired of my body pain and it seems so much worse lately and I am having trouble working up the motivation to do things. I feel stuck and frustrated. I am on gabapentin 600- 3x a day for a total of 1800mg a day. Is this a lot or has anyone found anything that helps deep muscle pains. I used to smoke weed to help but I haven’t in about a month due to other issues. :(

      You can say that again foggy isn’t even close I forget where I put things and they are in my hand 🤦🏽‍♀️

      I am on the same dose changing diet can help but is not a cure all. Muscle relaxers can help but can also make you foggy and lethargic. Stay strong 💜

      I’m on the same medication I also have to take a muscle relaxer on top of that. I understand how you feel the cramps and pain keep me up at night I resent people who can just go to bed I’m up pacing the floor at night because everything hurts

      Don’t eat sugar and gluten!!! Eat a lot of greens, turmeric, ginger. A lot of anti inflammatory foods and believe me you gonna feel better

      Awesome I think I’ll bring it up during my apt on Monday I’m just so tired of feeling crap - I appreciate all the feedback and help so much I really hope this new dr has some ideas she seems really nice so I am hopeful the other rheumatologist was ok but I just feel like I am not taken seriously ❤️‍🩹

      Yeah that's a middle does. I'm taking 900mg daily which is small for fibromyalgia. Muscle relaxers like tizanidine or what I used to sleep at night

      Maybe they can give muscle relaxers or something too 🙏

      I’ll have to see - I am going to the drs Monday to go over labs and X-rays with a new rheumatologist so fingers crossed 🤞🏻 I can get maybe a better treatment plan in place. thanks everyone!

      I’m taking 100mg 4x a day, which I understand is a tiny dose. I probably need more, though mine is for neuropathy that we don’t know the cause of yet.

      I’m on a way smaller dose for cerebral palsy and chronic pain, but this sounds like a middle dose. I think the max is something like 3600 (for seizures). A family friend was on 2400 at night for phantom limb pain after amputation.
