I'm taking gabapentin for thorasic back pain.
Gabapentin is a drug that was developed as an anti epileptic, but is indicated for relief of nerve pain, restless leg syndrome, and in some instances fibromyalgia. I take it for nerve pain and parasthesia (intense itching that you can't get to and it moves around). I have been on it for close to two years now, and while it doesn't take all the pain away, it at least helps and calms the parasthesia down to a tolerable level. I hope my answer helped :)
