Stari I do the same thing. I take pain meds before I leave for work so they kick in when I'm at work. And nothing more after 12 pm so I can drive home.
Merrygirl I think it might be due to the long drive and not taking your pain meds as prescribed. On the other hand it might be something starting up so your doctor should be informed so he can adjust your treatment and chart it.
I hope your pain level goes down...
