Afternoon all from sunny(ish) Stoke
I went to see my GP yesterday morning as I’d been off work for a couple of weeks with severe fatigue and didn’t feel ready to go back yet. She gave me another note for a further 3 weeks and asked if I was getting any pain. My legs and back have been hurting more than normal and I’d kinda got focused on the fatigue but now I think about it the fatigue may be a knock on from the extra discomfort in my legs. Anyhoo she’s prescribed me Gabapentin and kinda said I can take it as and when but try starting it before bedtime, just 100mg to start with.
I took one last night and this morning woke up ready to take on the world! No drowsiness from it, legs felt better, although now I’ve been up and about and pottering round they’re now starting to complain.
Is it normal that I can feel such a reaction so soon or could it just be a coincidence? I’ve read on here of people taking a lot higher dose 3 times a day to control their pain, it just seemed a bit too good to be true this morning!
Also any help from people taking it would be greatly appreciated
