That is exactly like me but the banging in my head was so bad I woke up thinking someone was knocking at the door. I sat up in bed and listened thinking who can be knocking at the door at this time..then I realized it was in my head. I was so scared I stopped them immediately. Never again. I was worse with them!

I'm not a doctor, but I don't think this is a good idea.
I have burning mouth problems too, and I think mouth dryness from anticholenergic drug side effects has been a factor.

I was put on Gabapentin 300 mg x 3 a day after I had what they thought was shingles on my head. I also have lower back pain, sciatica and fibromyalgia. My partner said I am very hostile towards him, shouting. I have even noticed I have very little patience with anyone. I also have hand tremors but worse of all I don't sleep, I keep hearing my pulse banging in my head and can feel my heart racing. The pain is still as bad. I am coming off them...this is making me worse!

I've been taking 2700 mg neurotin a day for 2 weeks. I first took it in 2015 and it made my limbs all swell really bad so I stopped taking it. When I started back on it 2 weeks ago there was no swelling at all. I think I didn't have swelling now because I drink 6 -8 bottles of water every day. My pulse was 118 today so I'm drinking 3 cups of hibiscus tea every day to try to counter act the raised pulse rate.

Yes, it does sound very similar. My eyes were blurry at first too. And yes the facial burning isn't handled by anything, not even Lyrica. I wish you the best and hope for us both a cute is found one day.

Yes, at first I didn't know it was the Gabapentin and I saw two different heart doctors. When my neurologist put me in the highest dose: 800 mg/4x/day, It caused a rapid heart beat (90-110), an irregular heartbeat (>60/min), high blood pressure 145/95, shaking/tremors of my hands, highly emotional responses to everything, difficulty remembering words, a spaced-it feeling like my brain was floating just above my head, diarrhea, weakness in my muscles, and my body did not "get used to" any of that. So I ended up taking four 1/2 doses throughout the day and one loading dose (whole) at night. My heart beat is back down to 65-80, my BP is down to 110/65, my cognitive functions are great, no tremors or weakness, no irregular beats, feeling so much better. This takes care of the severe shooting and some of the severe burning pain in my feet, but it does not take care of the burning in my legs/arms/hands/and face throughout the day. But I would rather deal with that than have my heart too fast/too high.

I was put on 800 4x/day two weeks ago and my heart rate is at 110 throughout the day but up to 148 if I do anything. However, my BP actually drops lower. Very strange. But now I'm on the higher dose I've experienced clumsiness, tripping, anxiety/overly emotional as well as the high heart rate. Sounds similar to your experience, Jen. The pain is handled but the burning in my face isn't still.

My eyes are very blurry with 400 mg 4 x day and now I'm on 800 mg 4 x day. My heart rate was 110 yesterday. No nausea but weight loss.

I recently had a Holter monitor study done and it noted increased heart rate during the night ... as high as 136.. it was 78 during the day.. I take Neurontin and a small dose of Seroquel at bedtime. and was wondering if either could be the cause

I also have increased heart rate, feel anxious, can't hardly get to sleep. Once I do I'm really out. Wake up and heart rate is high.
Most always over or around 100. Thats resting. I'm on 1500 mg. a day.
I also take meds for high blood pressure. My sister died of a stroke at 56, because of high blood pressure. I'm freaking out now. I go to doc. in four days. Hope I make it
Also have indigestion and uncomfortable feeling in chest and back on left side.

This is also my second time taking gabapentin, I used to not be able to tolerate it during the day and could only take at bedtime, but I'm starting to think that maybe the amount I'm on is just too much. I take it three times a day and seems like my rapid heart beat got worse when it increased to 400mg 3 times a day. Plus I've never had high blood pressure until about six months or so ago, I'm starting to get a little worried. I don't like the feelings I've been having lately. I start feeling like my heart is racing out of my chest and I feel like I'm smothering. I am also 50 and in menopause so I'm going to request my hormone levels checked too. I don't know why it would be that though, cause I had a complete hysterectomy in 2001... I went right into menopause then! Anyway maybe we can get some help, I wish you the best.

I also take Xanax for anxiety, no problem with it. I believe that gabapentin causes dementia and I think I've even read that it does cause memory loss. My doctor doesn't want me to decrease the gabapentin because he says it has helped my back pain, but my lower back pain is as bad as ever! I think I should start decreasing the gabapentin, and start by just cutting one of the three out a day. Thanks for your input, I appreciate it and I hope you improve.
