From time to time during the day Charlie will thump his back foot against the floor several times.
He has gabapentin at 6 a.m., 1 p.m. and 10 p.m.
The foot thumping is more severe prior to his 6 a.m. meds.
It also occurs when we are getting ready to take him out.
In the morning I will wait (an hour) and if he still thumps give him tramadol. I also consult the barometer--we're low pressure right now.
Presently he's sleeping beside me and his head is lower than his body. I thought they preferred to elevate their heads.
Should I be concerned about this thumping?
