Trouble going cold turkey off NSAID?

The other night I forgot my second dose of Voltaren. The next day I woke up with a severe headache behind my eyes, nausea to the point of vomiting, and muscle and joint pain all over. Could not function.

Another thing to mention though - I had overdone it for over a week due to having a house guest and a social event. My body was already starting to complain.

I have minor surgery coming up and wondered if I should ask for dosages to taper off the Voltaren pre-surgery, rather than stop cold turkey, if asked.

Anyone ever have this reaction after forgetting their daily NSAID? Or do you think I had a Fibromyalgia or RA flare from pushing all week? It has been days now, and I'm not feeling well.
