As you may know I have asthma, copd , ? bronchiectasis and epilepsy. The severe and violent coughing fits I had caused problems with my neck which kept going into spasm. I also experienced sharp stabbing pains at the base of my skull and also throbbing at both sides of my head. The physio can do no more until the pain gets under control. There are lots of painkillers I cannot take such as paracetamol, anything with codeine in it as well as anti- inflammatories. Today my GP prescribed Gabapentin. I have read all about it and although I have taken one already I have reservations about it. I just wondered if anyone else had experience of this drug and how it affected them. Keep well everyone and to anyone going through a bad patch I pray for you and wish you all the best. xx
