Medications affect different people in different ways. I know a few who have been on Gabapentin for pain relief, and with very good results.
As far as the Thyroid medication is concerned, it would pay to discuss this with your Dr. In NZ the Government stopped funding a certain Thyroid medication and patients were switched to another, cheaper one. Many complained because of the side-effects, and the Government decided that IF a patient had tried the new one and it wasn't as good or the side-effects were negative, then they could switch back with an Authority No. for it to be funded.
Also discuss with your Dr about the Vitamin D and possibly other supplements. My friend, who lives in the northern part of Scotland, has MS. Vitamin D is commonly prescribed to MS sufferers, particularly those who live in reduced sunlight places. It is best the Dr prescribes it because then it will be at an appropriate therapeutic level. She also had the input of a Registered Dietitian. Your Dr will be able to refer you to one. Another treatment she gets over there is treatment in a Decompression Chamber - those used for divers suffering from The Bends.
Good luck with your healing!
