3 months on Neurontin
My sciatic nerve in my right leg felt like it was as big as my arm. It made me feel like climbing the walls. I went to a neurologist and had test done. He started me out on 100 mg. of Neurontin for 1 week, then 2oo mg the next week, and on week 3, I was taking 3oo mg. I felt better but was still having a little pain. It took about 3 months before I wasn't yelling every time that I hoisted myself into the truck. But then I realized that I was having alot of arthritis symptoms in my feet, knees, elbows, hands, and neck/shoulder area. I knew that the only thing that was different in my life was the Neurontin. I had my daughter look it up and it brought me to this web sight. I have weened myself off of the Neurontin, but have not found relief from the arthritis. Can anyone tell me if the arthritis will go away soon?

I'm sorry about your RA pain. There are so many bad side effects that are hidden away on You are right that it can cause musculoskeletal problems, such as arthralgia, tendinitis, arthritis, joint stiffness, joint swelling. Also osteoporosis, bursitis, and contracture. Myoclonus has also been reported. Those are some of the side effects that they would like doctors to know about.

i think neurontin gave me RA. I have been on and off for a few years 5(5 maybe) only because i was on and off insurance. the withdraw is awful ! but the arthritis pain, swelling, didnt go away even after a year of being off. now im going to a specialist because i tested positive for rheumatoid. i think the neurontin caused it somehow or kicked it in maybe. but ive allready read about 4 people having this happen in the 20 minutes googleing. hmmm

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.
