Last year i was given gabapentin 300 mg 4 times aday and paracetamol 2 tbs for neopathic neck pain after an MRI they found formical spinal steniosis and compressed nerve damage
after falling down a flight of stairs.
This appeared to work but had horrible side effects
Mostly weight gain and fatigue.
Recently have had a CT guided steriod injection so decided to stop the gabapentin to see if steriod has had any effect.
I do wish i had read up on this drug before going cold turkey as now i am super struggling with withdrawal symptoms.
Extreme pain in my arms and fingers and sometimes in my legs sweating from my eyes. Headaches
Insomiea and restlessness to name a few.
After 2 days of putting up with the withdrawal i have had to go back on it again but trying to drop to two tablets a day instead of four. Any ideas or suggestions on what may help gratefully accepted.
