I have had an experience in a rehab visit...they combined cymbalta and gabapentin. I couldn't move...mostly I try to deal with my pain by mind over matter. Some days it works. Others have to used massage, tens, aqua therapy is the best for my pain and ICE is my best friend.
I stay away from meds. Injections I have tried them all...not a fan of cortisone. My daughter swears by medical card for Marijuana and so does her father. Though truth be told both smoked prior to ailments. We live in a legal state. I have yet to embark. I listen to my body, take its cues.

I was prescribed Gabapentin three years ago for chronic back pain and numbness and burning in feet. It helped a lot but after two weeks I started crying and became depressed. I was switched to Lyrica. I find this drug to be incredible.
Good luck.

Gabapentin is for seizures. I myself will not allow a Dr to prescribe off label meds to me. If you have a bad reaction you have no legal recourse except to sue the Dr & that's not easy
