Even one short little relaxing nap can change our outlook, I hope you have another day where rest is possible. You have always been the energizer bunny even with your pain so now let the batteries do the work for you......have another milkshake today and DO sit and watch soaps and eat bon bons, it will do wonders for you and you definitely deserve some relief and relaxation!!
How wonderful to hear, you are getting some relief! I am so happy for you and especially to hear you actually cut your work time down to FIVE HOURS, YEAH for you (what are you doing with the extra 19 hours?) lol!
Seriously, I have been enjoying some relief from the Low Dose Naltrexone and it is a miracle not to be consumed by a level 8-10 pain everyday! A 5 is so more enjoyable! A little relief in our world is so HUGE!!
I hope you get to sit and watch the soaps (hey give us an update) and pop some M&M's if they make you happier than bon bons!!
I wish for you and everyone a low pain day today!
Ok friends here is the latest report. I talked to the Boston Scientific rep today and my PMS. I had a bad night as the pain in my foot kept me up most of the night. I tried running the stim but when I turned it up enough to mask the pain, then it was too strong for me to sleep. The rep and my PMS want me to drop in tomorrow and see about a little tune-up. I managed to work a full day and ran the stim all day. At times it gets annoying. I was trying to explain to my wife what it felt like and I told her it was like sitting in a chair that vibrates but you don't get to get up and walk away. The other thing which they say will be different with the perm. unit is when I move, cough or even clear my throat, the stim peaks as the leads are not anchored down. It does not hurt, it just catches you by surprise. I will try and take off most of the day tomorrow and drive up and let them tune me up and maybe let the wife do some shopping. It is only about 45 minute drive which is shorter than some of you. We will hope for a good night. I am not ready to raise the white flag yet.
