Funny this should just come up. I to was just given Neurontin for terriable burning and pain in my legs. I to was afried to take it for reading what it was for. I took a chance for i trust my doctor and in a couple of hours what a difference it made. I had the best nights sleep in many a week. I'm only on Neurontin for a couple of days and do feel very dizzy,hoping it will go away. Keep taking it and hopefully you will feel better. Good luck. Let my know how you are doing.
