Ok, so having had the shooting pains through my eyes, ears and head night before last - and thankyou everyone who helped me on that blog - I took an extra dose of gabapentin last night.
So good news, I slept the night through. Bad news I am a zombie and the pain is back, so I have taken an extra 100mg to see if it helps. However, I think I am going to become a double zombie because it really is knocking me out.
I really feel I should be sucking peoples brains out through a straw and I am avoiding all mirrors as I look like the living dead.
I know 1500mg gabapentin isnt even the halfway dose, and I can increase a way yet, but I'm not liking this disconnection with reality. I am either asleep or feel like I am watching real life on the telly, not really involved in what is going on. Scary feeling.
I am going to try some meditation and a nice warm towel round my face to see if it relaxes the muscles (one of the suggestions last night).
Blessings to you all for your help and comments and most of all the support and love. God I couldnt do without you guys, so massive (but gentle) hugs to you all.
