Saw migraine specialist on thursday

Postby Roseofsharon » Sat Jan 28, 2012 4:47 pm

I saw my migraine specialist at the hospital in thursday and because diet hadn't worked for me he has put me on a low dose of gabapentin. I was just wondering what other peoples experience was of this?

Hi Sharon

I was put on Gaba`s by a neuro surgeon for migraines, think i was on them for around 5 months? i had to keep increasing the dose but they didnt work for me. I put on lots of weight. :cry:

:goodluck1: hope they work for you.

THanks Shaz. I too hope they work as I have been getting so much worse recently.

i take them but for the fibro and have put on lots of weight, but they do numb the pain and stop the muscle twitches. :-|
