Gabapentin is a pretty aggressive neuropathic pain reliever, often prescribed for individuals who have neuropathic pain (direct nerve injury), or chronic pain syndrome characterized by central sensitization (your nervous system is more responsive to the pain stimulus or whatever has happened in the periphery).
Think of this as a top down pain reliever.
Just as a random guess, but is your pain associated with a previous bone injury/fracture, or has there been no clear pathology??[/quote]
It’s something with a nerve. The pain did go away at least.
