Zombie!

Hi there, I'm Steph, 41, and a scoliosis sufferer. I've tried many meds on the scale and Am currently on 200 pregab morning and night. And 30mg zomorph morning and night. I have finally found a level that combats my pain which is excellent. However, I get home of an evening and am completely useless. My eyes are like lead and I definitely can't hold a simple conversation! After I've slept I suddenly become alive again at about 9pm - and hour before my night time zomorph 30mg is due.

My question is I feel in that time like I'm overdosing and I'm a little scared of its potency. I think I'm looking for reassurance that this is normal for us pain sufferers.

Thanks so much in advance xx

Hi,

It's really hard to give advice as pain is so uniquely personal. It's hard to balance side effects and pain relief.

Are you being treated at a pain clinic? If not maybe getting a referral might be an idea.

I've been put on pregabalin, but also referred to a pain psychologist and to pain physio to hopefully treat the whole problem of loss of function.
