Hey tink,

If your tongue is swelling from the gabapentin, you need to get to an ER immediately. You may be having an alllergic reaction which should not be ignored. Please seek medical attention right away.

Wow Tink,
I agree with Laurie on this, seek medical attention asap!! Sounds like a severe allergic reaction to me as well.
