Hi everyone, I'm new to this group although I was a follower of the knee replacement group.
I suppose this is a natural progression for some, considering the pain involved.
Brief history, I had knee problems and started on co codamol 30/500 in2014. Had a knee replacement which didn't work
. In all had 3 ops on knee which resulted in being on crutches for two years. Then found I had severe back spasms after coming off crutches.
So long and short of it is i was recently prescribed morphine tablets( MST). Told to stop codamol and take the MST. Did this for a week and suffered excruciating leg pain
Cramps like I've never known before. Could this be a withdrawal symptom from stopping the codamol ? I did think it was a bit strange to just stop them dead but doctor said that the MST would replace them.
