After having virtually no sleep for 4 days .. I called the Doctor yesterday and asked what else I can take for the pain. I was not wanting to go on prescription pain pills along with everything else I am already taking. I went to swimming before work yesterday, worked, ran my Daughter to her acting class, went to another swimming class, ran to get supper, picked up Daughter (ate in car), volleyball practice – off to pick up the new prescription – wait for volleyball to be over – home to bed.
I SLEPT!!!! – 8 whole hours – wonderful – I don’t know if the new meds were the reason or pure exhaustion.
I am now taking Neurontin (it is a low dose – 100 mg – 3 times a day). Only time will tell. I took a water class today that was meant for Fibromyalgia patients. They were so welcoming – talking about how long they have been diagnosed and attending water classes. I will be going every Friday. They showed me some new excercises to help with the numbness I am still experiencing in my hands. Pain is mild today. I am feeling so much better. I am now logging my symptoms and activities daily on an app for my phone and have joined two groups online. What wonderful opportunities there are now to share and support others in the same condition.
