quitting opiates cold turkey- on day 3 - Part 45

  1. Day 32,

    Today was good. Sleeping has been easier so it must now just be tied to my pain level on what kind of night I have.

    Pain wise, I'm actually doing really good. It's been coming and going today and at some points was pretty bad but I've been comfortable the last few hours. I've been keeping track of my pain the last couple weeks in a notebook so I could have a more accurate account when I go back to my doctor. It looks like I'm in pain more then I thought. Funny how I think its only a couple days a week when its really more like 5-6. That's very disappointing to me. I was hoping this would be something that I could manage with no or very little medication but its not looking like that is going to be a possibility. I took the gabopentin today and it helped some. I didn't take a full dose or take it 3 times like it said for the day but my pain was not extreme.

    Anyways, other then that all is well. I've been really tired today but I think that was from lack or coffee and the gabopentin LOL. It makes me sleepy. Hope you guys are all doing well!

    Smith,

    I am interested to see how effective anti-inflammatories will be for you. I think you will need something for pain but am hoping you will do well with something like Mobic (which is a good drug for bone pain). Gabapentin made me tired when I first took it but I got use to it. The Gralise is making me super tired. Hoping I just need to get use to it. :)

    Glad your sleep is good. I have been finally sleeping too! :)

    Where are you girl? I miss you. Don't think for a second you're not needed, or what you have to say isn't useful anymore. You are where I want to be, and hearing about how well you are doing keeps me going.

    I love you, girl! Come back!
