The first time I took gabapantin for my jaw pain, the pain got so much worse I was crying until it finally went away slowly. I have MS.
Gabapentin takes time to work. It needs to be taken as scheduled so that it builds in the system. Over a week or two it can make a big difference. I took it for shingles nerve pain. It did take a couple days until the pain faded. Sorry you have such intense pain. I do hope this works for you. Or that they find something that will.
