  • Blah! First awful flare in ages....

    Ahhh!

    I just finished another post trying to keep my mind off this stupid flare. I've had to go to the bathroom like twice an hour since 5am. UGH. I have been able to sleep off and on, and I took half a Vicodin..but I can feel the pain and pressure slowly returning. Hmph! Sorry guys, I don't have anything of interest to contribute, I'm just frustrated that it's a weekend and I can't go out because of how bad I feel.

    We just bought the Harry Potter chess set though, maybe hubby will play with me when he gets up from his nap. (lol, funny thing is, he stayed home from work today! Something in his coffee this morning made his belly not-so-happy.)

    Oh well, misery loves company right?

    Kitty!

    Just diagnosed w/PFD - Oh Boy!

    What I'm presently on:
    Noritriptyline 25 mg
    OxyContin 20 mg AM - 10 mg afternoon - 20 mg PM
    Zanaflex 2 mg at bedtime
    Percocet PRN for breakthrough

    Physical Therapy 2x weekly

    Kitty,

    I am so sorry to hear about your bad flare. I too am flaring today (it's been 5 days now but I am better today than yesterday)

    I will pray for you that your flare will subside. I am really leaning on my faith more and more these days.

    I would take more than a half of Vicodin though..it may give you some relief and help you rest.

    Hope you are and your DH are feeling better real soon!

    Blessings,
    Mimi~

      I'm so sorry you're flaring. I was out in your part of the country the last couple of days (and flaring too!). Hope you feel better soon.

          Thank you for the kind words everyone! I have been trying to sleep but there's a helicopter going around my neighborhood. Haha, I think it's time to move.

          Always when you need sleep the most, something prevents you from getting it, alas!

          Hey mimimama - what's a DH? Maybe it's all the pain meds but for the life of me I can't figure it out.
