I am home at last. Thanks again to everyone for their support!

I am on Humira, which does seem to be kicking in. I do two syringes tomorrow, and then I don't know what.
Prednisone (of course) 30mg tapering down SLOWLY
Bentyl at night.
Levbid during the day
tramadol/ultram as needed for pain

I'm a mess still, really. I decided today that I was tired of being cross-eyed and muddy-brained, so I didn't take any of my levbid or pain killers. Much to my annoyance, this tactic has not helped. I am shakey, nauseated, and tired beyond belief. I figured it was primarily the muscle-relaxing effect of the levbid, but maybe I'm wrong...

I need to have a clear head to figure out which of these stupid drugs are causing these miserable side effects, but a clear head seems to be the one thing that is unobtainable! I quite literally cannot read. My hands are too shakey to write. It is taking forever to type this, and will take me even longer to proofread!

But, at least I'm not in the hospital anymore!

OH GOOD! You are home! I was wondering how you were doing. Take it a day at a time. Keep your chin up!
