Does anyone else experience these? Mine seem to come and go and when I get really stressed, I have a bad flair up. Lyrica did not work really and my neuro wants to put me on a new medication that has the same dreadful side effecs as lyrica.

just wandering if anyoen else suffers from these as well.



  • only freak in the bunch :)
  • I do have them too. I read this online and know it is not all relevant but;

    One needs to figure out if these are just sleep related events or other types of events. The length of time that you could have this would depend on the etiology, as would how to manage it. So, I can't tell you much without knowing the etiology.

    Edit for additional information;

    You may benefit from an overnight sleep study with EEGEegrecording to accurately define your problem. Your neurologist should be able to direct you properly after a careful history and neuro exam.

    For more information, you can go to the American Academy of Sleep Medicine or call (507)287-6006. Best of luck to you.
  • I have had very light experiences with it prior to starting gabapentin. I attributed it to sertraline initially, but it may actually be nerve issues in my neck.

    The symptoms are far more exacerbated with the re-introduction of gabapentin.
