Hi everyone,I took a 5 day trip to see my two kids in college and have been in to much pain since I got back to log on.I did try a few days ago but there was a problem with the site.Sounds like I have missed a lot.I hate it when I can not get on line because of pain.I miss so much when this happens.I am not sure why my pain meds. have not been helping that much of late and I hate to think that I need a higher dose.I worry that I will just have to keep increasing the medication.Any way good to talk to all of you again.

Hi, Mom,
Welcome back! There's been a few problems for several of us logging onto the site and some other quirks, so it's not just you.

I'll bet you overdid it a bit on the trip, so that maybe is the reason for the increased pain. Maybe you only need some meds to help you until the flare calms down. I hope you call you doctor and check in.

Hugs!

PaLady

I bet your trip took more of a toll on you than you suspect! CP always gets its pay-back! ALWAYS! I do hope you CP settles down, and you get it back under control!
Glad to have you back

Hi Mom, sounds like you had a great time with the kids. You may have over done it and that may be why things are reared up. Give yourself a couple of days to rest up and if its still the same, well you may just have to get your dr to give you an increase. No one really likes to have to keep going up higher on their meds but thats part of the ballgame we have to play when taking pain medication.

I think you needed that little outing. It may have worn you out but your spirits seems to be alot higher. It comes thru in your writing lol. Take care and keep us posted...Susie
