helps with the electrocution feeling I get but, that's the only symptom I feel it helps with

so far, so good; I feel a little loopy sometimes but I'm hoping that will go away in a few weeks

I take gabapentin for a specific nerve pain in my outer thigh and it does seem to help control it some. No side effects as long as I take a low dosage (600 mg twice per day). A few years ago, I was taking 1200-1800 mg two to three times per day (if memory serves) and it made me fuzzy and disassociative.

Worked for a while then was not enough to control the pain.

This was excellent for the migraine pain.... I suffered for weeks trying many different medications and none worked but this did. The Vertigo nothing worked but time and exercises used for crystals in ear but it did not clear all dizziness. It did clear the most extreme spinning but the dizziness remained a for months even while doing exercises.

Using this in a compounded ointment. Does help for short period of time.

It does help with the nerve pain most of the time.
