Gabapentin for 2nd benzo cold turkey

I took klonopin off and on for a year in 2009-2010 off for a year and a half did some exercise triggered severe nerve and belly pain for 3 months, stupidly reinstated klonopin off and on for about a week, tried to taper quickly for a total of about 4 weeks. It will be 14 months off July 1st. I still have terrible daily pain in my belly. I have exhausted all natural means of pain relief with no relief. I have had every test imaginable, so I know it is still withdraw. Would gabapentin be a drug to consider til I heal from the klonopin withdraw?

Gabapentin is used often for benzodiazepines withdrawal as an anti-convulsion medication. Regarding your pain, I truly do not believe is part of a withdrawal. I hope you find a diagnosis and relief soon.
