    I have Fibromyalgia and nerve damage. I'm 34 years old. My rheumatologist put me on gabapentin to try to ease my severe pain. Low doses couldn't even make a tiny difference.

    This medication worked great on my lower back for the first 6 or 7 days, then it caused my legs and ankles to swell badly. A scratch on my leg constantly oozed fluid. The doctor told me to stop taking it, but now I hurt worse than I did! And I am still swollen!

    I take 600 mg 2-3 times a day and it works wonders for the pain in my legs. I had major lower back surgery which left me with lingering pain throughout my legs. Without this medication I can barely walk. Depending on my pain level for the day depends on whether I take 2 or 3 times. Most days I can get away with only taking it twice.
