@A MyFibroTeam Member brain zaps feel like little jolts of electricity running through your head. Some are worse than others.

@A MyFibroTeam Member. I have to stop taking for a week in order to have an epidural in my lower back bc of so much back pain. It's my last hope. I stopped Thursday and had the worst headache of my life yesterday. My head went crazy when I stood up. Throbbing like nothing I'd ever experienced. Then when I laid back down it would take forever to stop throbbing but didn't quit hurting until the evening. Went to bed and got up to go pee and the throbbing started back. Today another headache not as bad. Eased off and is easing back.
Tonight I'm crying like crazy. Feel very depressed. Not sure an epidural is worth this. Or if I get thru the week maybe should just stop taking.

I'm on 9 different tablets daily apart from the pain killers I just thought it would be be a good idea to reduce what I could. After all the feed back and reading up I think I will leave well alone as I'm reasonablely stable at the moment. I'm only 66 have wonderful support from my husband and family just wish I could have more of my old self back, sorry to moan hope you are having a better day

It's like electric shock in your brain. I've tried a couple times... headaches. I feel like if it does this - it can't be good!!!! Why do you want to stop taking it?
