Not B12: Glad you're concerned. Look for some other explanation for your symptoms, which don't suggest B12 deficiency anyway -- this is more about numbness and weakness reflected in abnormal gait, and slowing of mentation. Keep getting checked. BEst wishes. ...Read more

Dosing of Gabapentin for epic Migraines, tinnitus, nerve pain.  Is 1500mg or above a reasonable dosage?  I don't want to press my doc, but 900mg is fine, and 1200mg is a bit better, but still not efficaceous enough.  I've read that for nerve pain people g

That is reasonable: Often times when treating people with nerve pain the dose of gabapentin needs to be titrated up until the effective dose is reached (since the effective dose is different for each individual). The maximum recommended dose is 3600mg per day, so 1500mg is well within a safe range. ...Read more

Could ongoing migraines be the source of dizziness, lighthead, and tinnitus? This has been going on for almost two months?
