I have been taking Neurontin for 18 years. I stared @ 200 mg for anxiety and was increased to 900mg for back pain after three surgeries. 7 years ago I noticed edema in my extremities mostly my fingers but as time went on and I past menopause I was suffering from diffused pain throughout my body. Testing positive for a plethora of autoimmune disorders, I have been suffering even more with peripheral edema. It has intensified and I have more pain in these areas. My rheumatologist believes it may be caused by gabapentin. I find it hard to wean myself from it without anxiety and depression. Has anyone experienced peripheral edema with this drug or Protonix? I take both drugs.
