Today is a better day for me. I woke with only a little pain in my legs. Yesterday the pain was intolerable. I didn't sleep at all on Thursday due to the pain in my legs. To top it all off, after 4 messages to my Rhuemy, the nurse called me back and said my Dr never responded to the messages and the Dr on call said to go to the ER. I didn't want to do that! I just want something for the pain to last me through the weekend. Anyhoo, I spoke with my psychiatrist to see if I could take a flexiril and she pointed out that the klonopin would be good for that and we wouldn't have to sway from the med regimen that I am on. So I took one at 6pm and then one at 9pm and got the most sleep in several weeks. Restful sleep. I didn't wake up one time. I slept until 9:30am this morning. I think that's why I feel so much better. So today, I'm going to try a little walk in the mall (not too much) and some cleaning (just the dishes). I don't want to over do it because I know I will suffer tomorrow and I only have 2 pain pills.
But ANYWAY, I feel better today, I hope someone else feels better today too!
