I actually have pain meds, I have had 3 Crohns surgeries this year all with complications. I finally got off of fentanyl patches this past wednesday (I still had pain on the 50mcg and 25mcg patches). I also have oxycontin and dilaudid left over as well, none are helping. Last night I took the oxy, dilauded, benadryl, zanaflex (muscle relaxer), elavil (for migraines but they help you sleep too), and I had lidoderm patches on the joints and still had a tough time sleeping. The fact that my grandmother passed away yesterday doesnt help the sleep factor either. I do have entocort that my GI prescribed for me but they are a nonsystemic steroid. This is mainly for the gut though. I do have left over pred but fear if I take it I may run out before I can see a dr. I have my nan's wake monday and funeral tuesday so finding time will be hard I may have to see if my PCP has an appt wednesday or early in the day monday.
