I've been lurking for the last few wks, trying to decide if I wanted to post or not and then I slept for days straight. I took my meds Monday afternoon, went to bed that night around 10 and didn't wake up until this afternoon at 4. (Weds) My husband took care of our son, but I'm wondering if anyone else does this? The only med I skipped Monday was my 200mg of caffine every 6 hrs, which I take almost religiously every other day or I just can't stay awake. My hubby tried to wake me, but the most he could get was a cross between a growl and a snarl LOL The last few wks had been a blur of stomach flu, head colds and even a small stint in the hosp on the 21st as I'd been vomiting blood, they put me on Zantac 150mg and that's stopped. They also upped my tramadol to 150mg every 6 hrs. I see my dr next wk, the soonest they could get me in after being in the hosp wk before last. Aside from sleeping so much I've been flare free, though my beloved Helena the heating pad died
She went from my shoulders to my hips, or would wrap all the way around my waist. Oh and because of the stomach flu, I'm down to 87lbs, a size 12 in little girls or 2-3 in petites but I've been using the time between the hosp and my next dr appt to get back to 93lbs as my old dr threatened a feeding tube if I lost below 97lbs. My new dr hasn't addressed my weight yet, but I would rather not risk it.
I've had no more stomach problems on the Zantac, the scope I had in the hosp showed some minor irritation which wasn't in the second they did on the 30th so I'm not worried about
it anymore. Or the weight loss, it's never been very stable. Between the tramadol and prayer my pain's under control. But I am worried about
sleeping so long, dies anyone else do this? Is it another part of the Fibro fun? Or maybe a med side effect?
Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
My train of thought derailed long ago, now I take the bus, few more stops, but I eventually get there.
