I'm not quite sure what side effect you might be experiencing, but I went ahead and posted Gabapentin's side effect list below for your own reference:

drowsiness
tiredness or weakness
dizziness
headache
uncontrollable shaking of a part of your body
double or blurred vision
unsteadiness
anxiety
memory problems
strange or unusual thoughts
unwanted eye movements
nausea
vomiting
heartburn
diarrhea
dry mouth
constipation
increased appetite
weight gain
swelling of the hands, feet, ankles, or lower legs
back or joint pain
fever
runny nose, sneezing, cough, sore throat, or flu-like symptoms
ear pain
red, itchy eyes (sometimes with swelling or discharge)
rash
itching
swelling of the face, throat, tongue, lips, or eyes
hoarseness
difficulty swallowing or breathing
seizures

Ref: nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/druginfo/meds/a694007.html#side-effects

I can only speculate that one of more of these side effects are what's causing the strange symptoms you're describing (in which case it would be normal). However, if it becomes too bothersome or severe I would suggest contacting your doctor about other alternative medications.

Hope this helps!

I too experienced double vision, sweating, loopy bursts of energy, swollen face and neck, increased apetite, acne on my face, swollen hand. I saw my dermatologist yesterday as he prescribed this med for pain and itching. He said he does not know if the side effects will go away and upped my med from 900mg to 1200mg as I was still having itching. I am so scared my face and neck won't go down. I can't even look at myself. I am so swollen and this morning woke up with canker sores in my mouth. Please know that you are not alone and I am here to talk if anyone needs to. Good luck.
