stopping meds question.

I had to quit taking my arthritis meds due to surgery tomorrow. Getting my gall bladder out. When I quit taking them 5 days ago, throbbing pain engulfed several parts of my body. My diagnoses is severe osteoarthritis in my spine causing pinched nerves that affect most of my body. Since I have never had this throbbing pain in my ankles and feet. I wonder if something else might be wrong or if my arthritis is worse than I thought or if it is a side effect of stopping meds. Any clues?
