How Do You Feel With Costochondritis?

How Do You Feel With Costochondritis?

I ask this because I never have been told I have had this. But I know on here when I talk about these strange random chest pains, a lot of people mention it could be costochondritis. For example right now I have the upper left sided sharp/shock like feeling every now and then the past two days. But that’s my only symptom. No tenderness or any other problem.

Migraines

Migraines

Do any of you have strange migraine symptoms? Symptoms besides the headache itself? Such as tingling from head to toe, difficulty speaking, difficulty swallowing, panic, etc? Anything odd really. I have read about odd migraine patterns, but I'm curious to connect with anyone who has them. Thanks.

Gabapentin

Gabapentin

Just spoke to my rheumatologist today and mentioned that I was in a flareup and in a lot of pain. I had taken gabapentin before and she told me to go back on it again to help with the nerve pain and continue taking amitriptyline. A little worried about taking gabapentin long-term, any thoughts?
