I'm sitting on the heat pad on the couch again today, 3 hours after my tramadol and 1 1/2 hours since taking 2 arthritis-strength Tylenol (which I rarely need), shaking, whimpering, pain in arms and shoulders, plus spine and all-over fibro. Hubby worked last night so nobody to complain to. He was perturbed I was crabby when he called last night. Pain doc is on vacation, rheumy too sick himself to help - says go swimming. PCP not in ofice yet. There's nothing relatives could do, so no point distressing them. Not bad enough for ER.
I probably brought this on myself Friday mowing 2 hours (big tractor pulling 6' deck), helped loading a truck with junk for twp. clean-up day, Sat loading another heaping truckload and another hour mowing. I really need to mow the lower fields today before it rains again. Can't hire anyone I would trust not to overheat the tractor with grass so high. Guy I had last year came back all the time with it boiling, did $1000 damage to mower deck.
In desperation I found a Percocet, took with Zofran. I'll talk with pain doc next month, have an appt. when he comes back. Sinus surgery early June for chronic infections and headache, so I can't have the recommended shoulder surgery for arthritis spurs any time soon. Already had the 3 injections I was hoping would last a little longer. Half of this is fibro anyway, and I just have to wait for it to pass because "fibro-meds" don't work or have intolerable side effects for me.
Ouch! Just moving arm over to mouse is giving jabs. Wish I had made up the coffee pot last night.
