Your human...........who hooooooooo. Your one of us, is that not great? You have the right to feel nervous about going to the physicians office after all you want answers and you may get them or you may get tests, but it is usually normal to feel anxious.
Just try to stay in the moment and do what I do, just keep thinking by bedtime the day of the appointment it will all be behind you.
Gentle Hugs my friend.
Long story short...he dx me with Fibro. Put me on Lyrica. 75mg twice a day for 1 week. Then, week 2 it goes to 150mg twice daily. Then, week 3 and 4 it goes to 225mg twice daily. Thats a whole month. I have to go back to him the first of Jan to tell him whether or not it worked and to find out where I go from there.
I am very excited I finally found and I am getting some form of help. I was very nervous about taking the meds, but I have taken 2 so far. I guess I will know in the next couple weeks. I am just hoping I dont have any bad side effects. If not, I will be ok! But, I am very happy about all of it!
Thank you guys for being here for me! I will keep you all posted on how it goes. Thanks!
Thanks. I have talked to her once.
But, I have noticed a difference since starting Lyrica. I sleep better at night, which makes me feel better during the day! That is great! And very new to me! But, it also causes me to be very drowsy and sleepy, which I will hopefully get over, if not, I can live with that in exchange to sleeping better and not hurting! So, there is no giving up for due to side-effects! So far, it is going good. I cant wait to see what happens when I up the dosage this week! That will be interesting!
But, I am very confident that it is really helping me and it will get even better! Which I cant imagine. I also think it has helped with some anxiety. Although, I am not sure how...but today I went to Petco, as a P.A.W.S (Pets Are Worth Saving) volunteer. No anxiety. I played with 2 puppies in a pen for like 4 hours. And I talked to people like a thousand people who walked by shopping. I still didnt feel any anxiety! Today has been a very good day! I also woke up this am to take my med and I stayed awake, because I felt like I had already slept and wasnt tired anymore!!!! This was totally new to me!!!!
So, today has been very good! I am very excited to find out if uping the dosage will take away all of my pain! ((((Crossing my fingers))))
Thanks!! Have a Great rest of the Weekend!!
That is terrific that your doing so well. I would imagine the fatigue sx will wear off as you adjust to the meds.
You go and kudos to you my friend.
