hi all, i hope ure all well.
I have been working nearly everyday for the last few weeks and haven'e had much time to go on line.
I work 4 6 hr shifts and 2 4 hr shifts. In order to get through it i take nurofen plus which is 400mg ibuprofen and 16mg codeine, a few hrs later i take solpadeine which is 1000mg paracetomol and 16 grm codeine. Not too much pain, just a stiffness really in my back, but now i have a banging headache...is this from the meds, i also get a really spacey feeling and the worst fog ever.
I have to work as we are financially circling the drain and i can't afford to waste time and money on doctors.

you can get a "rebound" headache from codeine.  My doc told me that when I was taking Fioricet with codiene for Migraines.  Sorry I don't really know much about it, other than that it exists.  Hope you feel better soon.

I don't know about the other meds, but my husband gets a crushing headache from codeine.  He has to avoid it all together.  Codeine can also make you feel spacey.

I can't take codeine. Not because of headaches but because it makes me extremely nauseous.
