I have several dentals implants since 2010. Now I developed a neurodental aches. I consulted several dentists with no explanation about it.My internist doctor recomended gabapetine but Idid not taken yet. Comments appreciated
Gabapentin is prescribed for "nerve" pain. I had post-traumatic pain in my arms.
Starting in August of 2010, I took gabapentin, daily, for well over a year and I did not like it. 2012, I tried twice to get off it and got no help from my doctors; one tried to get me to increase the dosage.
I fell asleep on the phone. I fell asleep driving. I fell asleep during face to face conversations. I fell asleep and fell out of chairs. With the motor still running, I'd fall asleep halfway out of my car after closing the garage door; I'd wake up several minutes later in a dark garage with the car motor still on.
I still felt the pain just as much and often but I felt "separated" from it. I gained a lot of weight and my blood glucose remains elevated. I retained fluids.
I complained of having symptoms of pancreatis and gastric reflux and my doctors ignored this too. Lowering dosages, I got leg muscle cramps.
I went through severe muscle spasms and it took months but, eventually I got myself off of gabapentin.
I would not take gabapentin again.
One last thing, I have a lot of allergies; I was prescribed different leukotriene medications for allergy management. Each time I tried an anti-leukotriene group allergy med I developed severe dental pain (I thought I was suddenly developing multiple cavities but none were found). Eventually, I made the association to taking my allergy meds. I have not had any reoccurring dental pains like that since stopping "that category" of anti-allergy medication.
Have you associated your new dental pain to anything new that occurred for you arround the same time?
