Hi, I started neurontin last month. Its been around a month. After two weeks I started to notice I would get these weird "jolts" at night, right before falling asleep. I thought they were those weird startle things you get when you dream you are falling. Anyone get those where you startle yourself awake before you hit the ground? Anyway, I've notice its starting to escalate. The last two nights have been worse each night. Last night was terrible! I was jolted awake with my body becoming ridged and stiff for up to 15 seconds. My stomach seemed to come upinto my chest. All night long. They are becoming longer and more frequent!!! I checked on the web & they mentioned convultions as an rare side effect. I emailed my MD & called his office & left a message. N response, or called back though. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!
