From this study (7 days ago):
I have had severe jerking in head, upper body, arms, and hands where I can not stand or hold on to anything 4 times the last 8 months, and the last one this past month, and it lasted for almost a week then went away like the other times with being on the medicines. The dr. now has me getting off the Neurontin, and Cymbalta. My primary dr. wants me off the Zoloft too. I wish I could get them all on the same page. I was diagnosed with MS in 1999 and need something for spasms, and pain so I can get off this one pain pill. What is in the Neurontin that causes the jerking? Does the medicine Baclofen cause jerking too?
