Brief Answer:
Pain, agitation, hunger

Detailed Answer:
As Gabapentin is used as calming drug in case of alcohol addiction or marijuana etc, the calmness is affected once you withdraw it suddenly. you may experience more pain, anxious and more hunger for half a day to full day. so fluctuations in BP recorded as well.
Please take your doctor advise in case you wish to withdraw it.
