I have been recently prescribed neurontin. While im on it whenever i look one direction to fast, or move to quickly i get a strange sensation. Im not sure how to describe it, its not quite pain but is realy strange. I was wondering what about the medicine is causing this, and what would it be called?

I had this happen when I first started Neurontin as well, the good news, it does wear off after awhile. It is basically just a vertigo type thing, I also got it when I stood up too fast. It just isn't causing you a straight out dizziness.
Some people may have side effects while taking NEURONTIN. Side effects are usually mild to moderate in severity. The most common side effects in patients with nerve pain are
Shaking or tremor
Swelling of hands or feet
NEURONTIN may cause other less common side effects. For a complete list, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
