Wondering if over sensitive pain receptors in my hands would be due to using GABA? Anyone had any experience of pain in your hands? Otherwise great for treating anxiety.

I have suffered from chronic pain that would interfere with my ability to sleep. My pain specialist recommended GABA with melatonin and I have had great results.

Insomnia and not sleeping and dreaming caused me to have short term memory problems. ... Show Full Comment

I will never take GABA again.it caused me to feel panicky as I was very short of breath. My tongue was sore, and my hands were hot and red. This happened after taking one quarter teaspoon (500 mg) of powdered product mixed with water..by a company called NOW.

Comment:
I have had poor sleep for about 25 years, waking after just 4 hours sleep each night; I've tried EVERYTHING; this is the only thing that works; EXCEPT, it cannot be taken every night; just 2 or 3 nights a week. but I'm grateful just for that relief, and pleasant experience.
