Diagnosed last April and had 1st round of Lemtrada in October. Still quite new to certain sensations/patterns of this and learning every day.
I am getting over a chest infection and flu, however the last few days I have had constant stabbing pains at side and back of head. I had had this on and off over the years but never lasting longer than a few hours.
I know this will be due to cns being under pressure but at my wits end already as it’s excruciating when they strike. I may get 5 minutes or if I’m lucky an hour between them.
Anyway, yesterday my doctor prescribed me Gabapentin which was 300mg split yesterday, 600mg split between 2 doses today then up to 900mg split between 3 tomorrow and carry on at that. The reason for going on this as the anti depressant ones can cause fatigue and that worried me as I work full time (signed off at moment). My problem is I’m tired when I take these and not even at full dose yet : /
Can I ask of others experiences of this medication and how long until the pain will lessen? Does anyone have any tips on dealing with the stabbing pain?
Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this.
