  • I believe alot of my symptoms are related but after seeing 7 different specialists and them running many different tests I still don't have a diagnosis. Many of the tests are abnormal but nothing seems to fit completely together. My gastroenterologist is referring me to a surgeon for severe gastro reflux that can't be controlled with medication. I can't take the ferrous sulfate because of nausea.

    I'm not sure what state you live in but I have researched this same issue and THC the active ingredient in Marijuana and a few other active chemicals will calm the stomach and increase appetite. I'm not a user but I am considering it under medical advice.

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Increased dreaming and sleepwalking on neurontin. Found it affects me like clockwork. I must take it by 7pm in order to get up by 6am; otherwise I'm too woozy to drive even by 8am. Trying to make sure I took it early enough, I've taken at 6pm, but I wake up at 5am (I'm not a morning person!) like a like went off in my head! The swelling in my ankles is common with amlodipine and since I am still on the medication, it continues, but is not severe enough to give up the solution to migraines. I used to exercise on a good routine before migraines set in, but after a year before finding a solution, I lost the routine, gained 20 pounds back (I'd lost 40 over the previous couple of years), and lack motivation to get back to it. Depression has come back--I've battled it since childhood-- and returned to using desipramine after trying just about everything else. It's not as bad, but I attribute the weight gain and lack of motivation to depression. I'm currently taking 100 mg and can tell improvement, but broke down in odd crying spell at Church service yesterday for no real reason--just touched, but tears wouldn't stop. The neurontin was supposed to help with fatigue, but I tried to taper off and found my mind racing at night so went back on it; I definitely talk and walk in my sleep on it--taking 1600 mg at night.
