A 45-year-old female asked:

I took gabapentin for cervical stenosis. i had foot cramps and went off the drug. cramps better, but legs still ache, could this drug induce this?

Cervical spondylosis: If you have been off the Gabapentin for greater than several days i would not think the leg pain would be due to that. You might want to have your md reassess the cervical stenosis.
