From this study (2 months ago):
I had been taking Vicodin for over a year. My dx is chronic thoracic back pain. Stenosis with foraminal encroachment. Built up resistance so they put me on Gabapentin. Bad choice, put severe lesions all over my back. So now I have been on 15mg morphine bid.for one week. I end up in the ER for severe Gout. Never had gout in my life. All of my blood tests were normal. And - my uric acid was normal. Sounds like I had an adverse reaction to the Gabapentin and the Morphine. Your thoughts and comments will be greatly appreciated.
