the best thing for people not satisfied with pill med is to consider being eval for medical marijuana, this has shown to be one of the best items for chronic pain,you can try edibles or vaporizers

I do take medical marijuana....but I have had a bad reaction to the Gabapentin and now have bad stomach pains. I saw another doctor yesterday...he took me off the Gabapentin, put me on Nexium for the stomach and ginger pills. Is there anything else I can do?

you may have to try different Proton pump inhibitors since they all do not get the same reaction in some some may require 2x a day depending on the severity of the gastritis
may need to change how much sativa/indica marjuana combination
