Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
I've been having a lot of lower back pain in the last several weeks with it tending to shoot down legs as well. It is most painful when lying down or sitting down. I exercise (run) every other day and refraining from doing that has not helped the pain. Back feels best when I'm up and moving around. Most mornings the pain is around a 7.

I have some type of autoimmune disorder. looks like lupus but not sure. lesion on my brain located on my Thalmus looks like low grade tumor or MS. I have sick sinus syndrome and Long QT. I have a pacemaker because my heart stopped. I had half my liver removed due to giant hemangiomas. no one understands or can figure out what's wrong with me. I feel elderly at times because my bones are deteriorating and I have shrunk 2 inches this year
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.
