Yeah, I had a major withdrawl from my baclofen pump. I was a couple days late on my refill appt. The pump still had medicine in it but I guess it was so low that my body was not getting the dosage it was used to. I did not sleep for 3 days straight and it felt like my entire body was on fire. Once I got refilled everything was fine. I have not heard of long term withdrawl symptoms though. I know that your Dr. should slowly ween you off of it so your body looses its dependency. I hope you start feeling better soon!
