Having come off Gabapentin (before my knee replacement in September) and the subsequent withdrawal symptoms I experienced, I've come to the conclusion that I must be coming up short in the common sense department!
Since speaking to the Nurse on the 111 service last Thursday, I have exchanged Cocodamol (30/500 X 6 daily) for Paracetamol. Why did I not think that my nights of writhing in bed might be withdrawal? I've had restless legs all over my body and headaches which I have very rarely. Not forgetting the nausea which may be connected, or is that a side effect of the constipation?
I've now stopped Lodine as well and am wondering what other goodies are in store.
I'll give you all an update later. I must say I'm dreading the next few days!! ToD xx
