anyone get mirroring side effects from extended use of gabapentin? if i didn't take the gabapentin on time, it would mirror my fibromyalgia symptoms (sore aches, hyperhidrosis, fatigue, etc). i found this out after my new doctor took me off of all my pain meds to assess my issues purely(he automatically knew my prior doctors overmedicated me). i quickly realized a lot of my consistent pain disappeared. i was shocked and emotionally hurt by my prior doctors, and i'm still confused on why it happened. i still have a bunch of gabapentin left over from my old prescription because they always prescribed me multiple 3 month refills every month. i now take one pill, rather than two or threw, if i get a bad flare up(aka as needed), and i don't experience the side effects anymore.

      currently experiencing this! i take three daily, if i don't take them almost exactly on time everyday, i will start to feel harsher aches and pains than even before i started the gabepentin.

        @erethreals yes, exactly! i was prescribed 100mg, 1-2 pills, three times daily. i want to try pregabalin, but i don't know if it'll do the same. i'm hoping to meet with a rheumatologist soon, anyway.
