Gabapentin (Neurontin) has a nick name called Moron-tin. It is absolutely possible this caused the issue you described and if I were you - I would be getting a different doc. For me, I get very good relief from Baclofen (actually an MS drug that treats the spasms) and hydrocodone for pain. It manages my issues quite well without any brain fog issues. Best of luck to you.

Age: 59 Female Problem is severe leg pain and lower back. my doctor put me on Gabapentin, butrin patch and percoset for my pain. Within the first week, my husband works away from home for 2 wweeks through the month, he was gone, and our house security system went off and all I can remember is I was walking outside around our pool (3:00am) and all of a sudden a female deputy is in my living room telling me to come inside. I don't know what we discussed, but remember talking to her and remember what she looked like. Course the security system alerted the deputy and also called my husband. I threw all but the percoset in the garbage, I needed to keep one of them for my pain. My husband said I was literally carrying on whole conversations in my sleep. I told my doctor what happened and that I threw the drugs away, and he really got upset and wanted to know if I wanted a different doctor. that I need to take what he prescribes and that he has never, never heard of those side effects and he treats hundreds of pain patients each day. I felt like he thought I was lying. But, it did happen, and was crawling out of my skin. So Im back on the patch and the percoset, but I will not touch the Gabapentin 100mg again, not ever!!!
