Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 months ago):
I had spinal fusion and bone graft two years ago for broken lower back and also had a tumor on top of the nerve on top of the break. Since that time the pain has never gone away and I do suffer back spasms. The strange thing is I really have gastric problems now (I do know that dairy products are a no-no - this is pretty severe and I am probably sick about 75% of the time.) Now I increasing have a pain in my left leg that is getting more and more constant and painful.
From this study (11 months ago):
I have had leg cramps during the night for a number of years. I started taking Gabapentin January 2013 1 capsule evening then increased to 1 capsule in the morning and one at night. March 28, 2013, reduced to 1 capsule at night for one week and then discontinued. Since then I have had severe leg cramps at night. Sometimes waking up every hour all night long. The pharmacist said that I stopped the medication too soon. During that time I had problems with phlegm. I started taking Allegra. The leg cramps continued and I thought it was the Allegra, so I stopped taking that. I have always had low potassium and I had a blood sample taken today. I will have the results tomorrow, but wondered if any of these medications could cause the leg cramps. They are really very severe. I drink water during the day and have been eating a banana every day for the potassium.
