How much can you take

Stephend profile image

I’ve been on Fentanyl now I’m on Buprenorphine gabapentin and zapain which is 30mg codeine 500mg paracetamol that’s just the pain and 7 other different medications for other illnesses I have arthritis of the lumbar region right foot left knee left hand which I have steroid injections in every three months and Clavicle disc degeneration at the top of my spine as well I’ve got my pain in control at the moment I feel like I’m not me anymore

Of course you don’t. You are so over medicated and you must feel sedated or brain fogged. Can you try eliminating Gabapentin? Why are you taking it?

30 mg coedine is a very high dose. Your brain chemistry must be a mess!

When was the last time you had a thorough check up by a rheumatologist and neurologist? You need help quickly. Good luck.

Hi konagirl60

The gabapentin is a neuro blocker that stops the pain signals from the brain as I have a spur that’s completely blocking one of my nerves in the lumbar region no not really I find I cope quite well with the medication I’ll see my doctor every couple of months that because I have emphysema I see a nurse every couple of months as well so I’m well looked after really really really well looked after and I’ve been on them for the last three years so I’ve got well used to it now and again I do have a lot of sickness as in once every few months there’s a couple of days where I’m very sick due to the fact of the medication then I can’t take the medication for a couple of days and then I’m back to normal I take medication it’s all all rectified itself as you know you do get used to things

I’m still happy

Stephend in reply to Rabs550

I’m not sure it was a couple of years ago I know I still had a lot of pain I now take 20 micro gm an hour on a seven day patch of morphine which I find works a lot lot better than the Fentanyl did but I can’t remember to be honest how many milligrams I was on it started in a liquid form in the patch and then it went to just a normal patch but I didn’t find it helpful at all to be honest

Take care

It was called nutcracker hypertensive but then they re-classified it as a spastic jackhammer I don’t eat they feed with Supplements I get from the chemist that mixed with milk there about 300 and some odd calories a time I have 2 a day to stop malnutrition know I’m quite thin but I see a specialist I’ve had Botox injections in the muscle above my stomach about 12 the last ones were September last year but in November I had a amputation of the top of one of my fingers due to streptococcus meningitis but I’m alright

Nutcracker non-cardiac nerve pain is excruciating. I empathise with you. According to my cardiologist and neurologist it's about 10 times more painful than a heart attack. Eating can trigger it.

When I get it it cuts the circulation off to my left arm in its entirety.

People shouldnt suggest that "you are over medicated" until they know the true pathology of your disease. I hope the Botox is helping

Stephend in reply to happytulip

Thank you at last someone can understand the pain and understanding of the disease the Botox does work for me at the moment but saying that I did have at least 8 -12 injections of it last year I hope you are as good as can be
