I never thought I'd long to wake up with a pain level of 4,5, even 6. But after 2mos. of this pain spike I would welcome a level of 4 rather than 6,7 day after day.
I get up and can take 1 or 2 methadone. But I always try to start out with 1 and sit at the table drinking coffee with my SCS on full blast. (which I can only tolerate for 2 hr.) But lately I take the second one 30 min. later. And still hurting. So after 3 hrs. of this I take my break through med. I don't like to do that, because now I'm loopy, and don't want to do anything. But at least the pain is knocked down to where I can handle it.
I know part of this pain increase is due to the depression. And my P.M. Dr. upped the Prozac from 10 to 20 mg. and the wellbutrin from 150 to 300 mg.
It's got to get better. :''(
