Just venting, because I know you know how i feel...
Wednesday night, 2 hours of sleep, due to those fun "night sweats" that go along with menopause
Last night, 0 minutes of sleep, due to bad lower back pain, & Doc switched me from the 3 mg of Ativan I have been taking to sleep to clonipan, I think it is?
This morning, migraine headache
Kids had no school today, so we went to the movies. Less than 30 minutes in, I'm squirming in my seat & trying to hold back the tears, I'm in so much pain, but don't want the kids to know. Got up several times to walk & stretch, not helping. Movie couldn't be over fast enough, & I'm sad & frustrated that I can't even make it through a movie with my kids!
Home at last, 2 Norco & some Motrin, laying down watching TV with the kids, trying my best to distract myself this pain, more Motrin, some Biofreeze, nothing is helping! I haven't been in this much pain in awhile. Not sure what I did to bring this on, maybe the pedicure I got yesterday? Sat in one of those massage chairs, I couldn't get comfortable with it, so turned it off. Maybe it was that, or just sitting to long?
Guess I got my answer about whether the nerve burning thing & the breast reduction worked; worthless!! Back to square one. Hubby asked me if I wanted to go to ER, he can tell how much pain I'm in, but I said no, because we all know how that will end. If this doesn't settle down soon, I may change my mind & take my chances & beg for some relief...
I can't believe my PM actually told me Tylenol was all I needed to control this level of pain...
Thanks for letting me vent
