I have now started 2 weeks holiday from work and due to my lack of sleep i decided to see if stopping my medication would help with my sleeping pattern.
i literally just stopped taking everything so from 20 tablets per day to 20 tablets in last 2 days. my pain feels different, dont know how to describe it but its not quite the same as my normal pain. i havent been doing very much at all the last 2 days for fear of ending up worse but even not doing much i am still in pain and had the strangest sleep last night ever! as mad as it sounds i dont know if i slept or not! at one point where i thought i was wide awake and in the kitchen i was actually still in bed so must of been dreaming and was like this all night! spoken to my neighbour (i live in an upstairs flat with noisy floors!) she heard me several times during the night but i dont seem to remember getting up so i am very confused (not hard theses days though!)
maybe this is because i just stopped all meds rather than withdraw slowly, i was meant to carry on the gabapentin to keep the levels up in my body but stupidly forgot about this when i had my daft idea!
think it will be back to the meds tomorrow and back to the drawing board over the sleep!!
