    Gabapentin tapering can be very tricky for some people.  Getting off Gabapentin was never very difficult for me, but I know of people who had nasty headaches and/or compromised mental states.  I've never heard of Gabapentin tapering causing only one side of the body conditions, but I'm only speaking from my own experiences and experiences of friends.

    If I was in your shoes, I'd report the symptoms your having to the doctor that was writing your scripts for Gabapentin.

    Do your due diligence, trust you know your body and question everything if it does not fit. Advocate for yourself and you will be surprised what will be revealed trusting your body and instinct.
