I finally got my medrol dose pack filled. I started it yesterday. Now I can't sleep. I had about 30 minutes of sleep. I ended up with a bad migraine headache and just decided to get up. It always does that to me. But who know? Maybe I have inflammation and that is causing all this pain in my buttocks and hips. If it helps, it'll be worth it. I did stop the Mobic until I get finished with this pack. I called and talked to the pharmacist and he agreed to stop it until then. Goodness, the sun is coming up. I am sleepy now. And my migraine is better. I guess it would have gotten better sooner, but I got out of bed and came straight to the computer. It hurt, but this forum is like my addiction! And one more thing, I have been eating yesterday like there was no tomorrow. That is another thing I get from taking this pack. And Lord knows, I don't need to be eating like this. I will be careful today. I'll drink more water. It was just like I couldn't stop myself. I ate and ate and ate more! I usually don't do all that eating. I ate enough for 2 days worth! Well, thank goodness this will only be short term, or I'll have to go inveest in some more clothes!!!lol It really isn't funny. I get so mad at myself for doing it. And since I've been up, I've had Buggles and cereal! I feel so bloated, I could pop!!!! I have to get control over all this extra eating. I thought I was doing good until this. Does the medrol dose pack effect anyone else like this? Severe migraine headaches, and eating everything in the house but the couch???
Oh, and I did get my PCP to call in a rx for Xanax. I was glad she did that. I haven't taken them in so long. I took only one today. And they are just the 0.25mg. It did help. I didn't feel like my brain was a movie projector. You know, the old ones that spin and spin and spin more. Well, that is what I've felt like. I do think it will help. I take them on a as needed basis. The doctor wrote it for 1 pill 3x's a day. I have never taken that many in a day-maybe after my 1st husband passed away. That was 10 yrs. ago. I just need to get the edge off. I just feel overwhelmed right now. Oh, and the PM did call in a refill for my flexiril. I have an appt for next Friday. I am glad he called it in. I haven't been in months. I didn't think I would have to go back. He called in #20. That is more than enough. Those are the 10ng and I take those every 8 hours. The nurse was real nice. She said she is so sorry I have to go back to PM. She was hoping the surgery would make it all better. I said that I was too. And I told her I appreciated her saying that. They are all nice there.
Well, I am off to bed again. I am sleepy now, finally. My husband will get up with my daughter since I haven't slept. He is sweet about that. Connor is coming home today! I am so glad. I have missed him sooo much. The family is having a get together at my sisters' this afternoon. Alot of the family will be there. It will be nice to see everyone. My husband isn't going. My mother will be there. It bothers me so much. He is my husband. No one in the family has a problem with him but her. He said he would go. And said when he saw her he would go to her and say "Come give this big a..hole a hug". It was meant to break the ice and be funny. I said no, please don't do that! In there big fight that day she said he was a bigger one than she thought he was, that is why he was going to say that. And I think he meant it in a good funny way. But no, he will stay home while I go see my family. And it shouldn't have to be that way. Now, because of their fight, he won't be coming to family gatherings. And that hurts me. He is my husband. He should be there too. It puts me in a bad spot...Great, my daughter just got up ready to start the day!
