3 months on Neurontin
I stopped taking the neurontin, weening myself off if it and a month later still having bad arthritis pain. I hope you have stopped taking it as well.
Hi Sonya  |  July 23, 2014
I have been taking Neurontin for about 2 1/2 months and I am having some of the same symptoms. I wake up most mornings with both arms (from my elbows on down) are numb and in pain. My feet swell very mad also and so does my face. I started out taking 100mg three times a day to taking 300mg four times a day. I'm still in constant pain and my mood swings are horrible. My lymph nodes under my arm is also swollen, red, and painful. I have migraines. I totally understand how you feel.

Baclofen vs Flexeri
I started with Baclofen then started flexeril. I swear by baclofen as the BEST. I honestly can't say much about flex because I really haven't given it a chance but I hope it the Baclofen works as good for you as it did for me. Also, it curbed my desire for the opiate pain relievers. My doc seems to want me stuck on them lol she took away the baclofen and gave me a shit load of tramadol and flexeril. Could be blissful if only I were ignorant..
