Abstract

In this case, a middle-aged woman suffering from chronic generalized pain, depression, and fatigue was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. She suffered from multiple common comorbidities associated with fibromyalgia. For her pain, she was started on low dose of gabapentin. The medication was titrated up to an oral dose of 300 mg TID for her chronic pain. However, soon thereafter she began to suffer from ataxia and falls. The patient was tapered off of gabapentin and her symptoms improved.
