I finally got to my appointment after a month of pain. Come to find out when I got there I was seeing a nurse practitioner. I went to the local health clinic since I have no insurance. I was thinking oh great is this gonna be a waste of time?! To my surprise she was great......unfortunatley does not know much about fibro but said after we rule everything else out she'd refer me to a specialist. She's checking my thyroid, but seems to think I might have osteoarhtritis. She did give me some precriptions.
Flexeril and 800 mg ibuprofen 5x a day
Well let me tell you I slept last night!! Woo hoo!!! 1st good nights sleep in a month. I still woke up with pain and stiffness. But I was so happy to have slept.
Anyone else take these and how do they work for you? So I go back in 2 weeks and move on from there, hoping I'm on the road to better sleep and at least a little less pain.
Sending sleepy and happy pain free thoughts to you all.
