Gabapentin, Sunshine, Fatigue

I just started taking Gabapentin a few days before I went to Spain a couple of weeks ago. The woozy feeling subsided a day or two before we got there. The temperatures were sometimes in the 40’s so I found the heat quite draining but my walking was great, no freezing feet or pains in legs.

Felt really fit apart from tired off heat. Second day I did fall over but after that I was great. Not sure if that was medication or heat.
Come back to not so sunny England and straight back to freezing feet, not walking smoothly like I was and the worst fatigue I’ve ever felt.
Is it just that the heat/sun made me feel a whole lot better or is it that my body has adjusted to the 900mg’s a day of Gabapentin now and that’s why feet are cold and legs don’t want to walk normally and why I’m having shocking fatigue??
I’ve suffered fatigue but not to the point that it has at work since Thursday.
Or is it just the stress of coming back home?
Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

Hi chick,
I find when i come back home after a lovely holiday, especially one where there is such a difference in weather, my body takes time to adjust and i am very tired for a couple of days. Also, have you thought about getting a SAD (seasonal affective disorder lamp)?

Hiya hun
I think I’m definitely going to have a look at that ans see if that’ll make a difference. Did you mention you could get something similar for work? My eyes were rolling round my head yesterday and Monday.

Yes, you can! you can get a little one that clips onto your screen, a friend from work has one…his face was shining from under his chin as the lamp is at the base of the computer screen….looked like some sort of a saint lol! x
