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 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.
