  • Hi there, I have recently been signed off work for a month and don't know whether i can carry on working when i return in a fortnights time. The pain and tiredness is so difficult to live with, i take Co Codamol too when i feel the need, i'm also taking Gabapentin 900mgs a day it has helped greatly especially with sleep i am also taking a Vitamin B12 liquid which i got from my local healthfood shop as it is supposed to help with restless leg syndrome fingers crossed it will benefit me and others who are giving it a go. Gentle hugs to you xxx

  • I am on the same meds and while they don't take the pain away completely believe me, after the week I've just had I realise that they help more than I realised. I had to stop my Gabapentin to start another med. The resulting pain was un-believeable and I suffered an allergic reaction to the new meds which resulted in me looking like a hamster!! I have had to have yet another week off work because I feel like a space-man! I can't drive coz I can't see, blurred vision yet again and hot flushes. I have also had involuntary jerking movements and burning in my feet. I am seriously fed-up!! Sorry about the moan guys but no-one else understands us except us. :/
