Our weather was bad last week, clearing up now -- maybe that had something to do with it. I do feel better today though. We don't have a tub - I made hubby take it out and put in a 2 shower head fancy shower instead! The hot shower did help though - made it easier for me to sleep, which I think was part of the problem. When I hurt that bad, I can't get comfortable and I can't sleep. Geez, what a cycle, eh?
As for the ringing...well, I saw the ENT (what a waste of time). He never asked why I was on the medicine I was, but good golly, as soon as I said I was a trapshooter -- there was the problem. While I might agree noise accumulation may have contributed to it, it seems strange that it all started right after I started the Remicade. I didn't compete hardly at all last year, so I really don't think that's the "entire" problem. Oh -- he also told me to cut down on caffeine for a couple of weeks (decaf, me? HA!!!) Phooey on him.
I did get a new pillow this weekend -- do you have any idea how many different types of pillows are out there?
Good heavens! I did end up with a rather expensive "pillow within a pillow" that I love. You should have seen me lying on the floor in the stores where I was testing the pillows at - other's were doing it as well. Too funny. It's taking me a bit of time to get used to it, but I can use it for sleeping on my back and side, so that's good.
Thanks for letting me vent - I haven't felt the need to do that in a very long time...hopefully after my infusion, things will be better. Enjoy your day today all.
