Back to the doctor again, to find meds that work. Not only am I not sleeping, but my heart will do weird flip-skippy things too.

I wonder if this is worth it?
spiderdust: (anger)
I don't think I like this new medication at all.

This is supposed to help me sleep, and therefore help my pain management? I don't consider waking up every hour and being too revved up to sleep deeply to be improved sleep. Heck, I got better sleep with melatonin and kava, and I can't do those now (nor are they good to do continuously).

Now I'm tired, cranky, VERY AWAKE, and have extra aches to boot. Feh.

That's what I've just been prescribed for my fibromyalgia. Anyone familiar with it?

Today I woke up with a migraine.

When I was finally able to keep some food down, I took the anti-inflammatory for my toe.
The migraine got worse.

I lay down on the couch, wondering how much longer it would be before my head exploded, and went to sleep.

Care to take a guess at some of the side effects for indomethacin?

It's off to work I go.

I'm leaving the Flexeril at home & just relying on ibuprofen today. I've got a stool behind the counter that I can sit on from time to time, but I know my back's going to be pretty tired when I get home.

Tomorrow's going to be a tiring day too; Munchkin has a soccer class, then we head over to San Francisco's Aquarium By The Bay for a homeschooling field trip, and then I have an appointment in the city. After that, a quick (ha!) stock-up trip to Rainbow Grocery & then the drive home. We should arrive back at our place around 7pm or later. :(

There never seems to be enough time to slow down...

I can't win

Exhausted from the pain, spacey from the meds, yet awake from the pain & disoriented from the meds.
And I have to go back to work tomorrow. :(

A couple of days ago, my back spasmed badly enough to make me leave work.

Yesterday, I finally got to see the doctor about it. He told me to stay home from work and gave me a new prescription of muscle relaxers. I hate how groggy they make me. I keep falling asleep in the car; today I fell asleep from 3:30 until 7:30, and I was asleep this morning until 10:30. I still feel like I could sleep some more.

What I hate about painkillers the most is they don't fix the problem. They just make it so you don't notice it. I have a massage therapist friend that I need to call... hopefully he'll be able to fix it & tell me how to keep from reinjuring it. [livejournal.com profile] insomnia & [livejournal.com profile] iceblink have also offered the use of their massage table and hot tub, and have also offered to do some moxibustion on my back as well. I think I'm going to take them up on all of their offers.

I found the website for oscillococcinum.

And I'm doing better today. I'm going in to work.

I can turn my head a good bit more now, but I still have to be careful. I really hope I'm a lot better by Sunday, or work is going to be hell. I have a feeling that I'm going to be spending a good portion of the weekend in a Flexeril & codeine induced haze.

I'm back from the doctor's office.
He gave me some Flexeril and has called in a prescription for Tylenol with codeine for me.

I go ni-ni now.
spiderdust: (ghost)
There's nothing like being at work, using sharp knives, and having the room spin.

I think I should call the doctor about my medication.
