Doctors doubt that only two consecutive 300 mg capsules of Gabapentin caused my twitching and jerking movements 10 years ago. It’s probably a very rare adverse reaction but sudden onset is called Acute Dyskinesia. Many doctors have quoted statements from my normal neurological exam that was completed 82 days before my adverse reaction to Gabapentin. My prescribing doctor evidently didn’t tell these other doctors about my adverse event. Doctors even ignore my 6 mm non-enhancing lesion on my hypothalamus gland, and even describe it as asymptomatic, (no symptoms). One doctor recently called my problem, “Functional,” implying that my brain is functioning normally. I did some research and found an explanation on YouTube about the “Motor Circuit of the Basal Ganglia - Functional vs. Dysfunctional.” The Subthalamic nucleus is the latest term for hypothalamus gland, so I believe this shows that mine is not functioning properly.
