You can take gabapentin nt if your pain is severe. Otherwise other painkillers will be enough and you have to bear the drowsiness. Seizures and rls are very rare side effects of gabapentin nt. So don't worry. Also if your pain doesn't decrease you should show it to sport medicine specialist.
There is no point in masking the pain we have to find the root cause and deal it than only the problem will get solved. You could have a radiculopaty or neuropathy you have to answer several questions before i come to a diagnosis gabapentin will have a masking effect on the nervous system it may make you drowsy. Consult privately to have detailed discussion and solution

Cold compresses can help reduce swelling in the area. Cooling also helps to numb sharp pain. Apply an ice pack for up to 20 minutes, up to five times a day. Use a frozen gel pack, ice cubes in a plastic bag, or a bag of frozen peas. Wrap the cold pack in a soft towel. Do not apply a cold pack directly to skin.
