      Hi everyone. Had T for about a month and a half now. Saw an ENT today, which I honestly thought was quackers to say the least because he thinks I might have TMJ or it might be caused by my gabapentin.

      Anyway, he wants me to discuss with my primary care doctor about getting off the gabapentin for diabetic leg pain and my bulging discs.

      To make a long story short...is there an option that anyone knows of that might help, but not possibly hurt my ears more? I can't go without it for the burning neuropathy, so I am scared!!

      I heard that in rats they injected a hormone known as FGF1 and it cured the diabetes of the rats. Just one injection. Now when will they bring that to humans? I'm pessimistic about that...

      Have you tried Lyrica? I have been using that lately. I have some burning pain in my toes that could be caused by lower back problems or neuropathy. I've used gabapentin quite a lot before Lyrica. Gabapentin is much cheaper and can help some people with tinnitus.

      Pumpkin,
      how many mg's of Gabapentin do you take daily and what is your body weight?

      Also, does anybody know about long term effects of being on Gabapentin?...does it affect tinnitus in a positive or negative way long term?
