I think we have finally got the right dose on new patch!! My neck and back are so much better. Hoping as it builds it will help with numbness and tingling in hands and feet but even if this is as good as it gets I can live like this. Cooking for the golden oldies today, 10 hour shift so this will be a true test on meds.
I have really appreciated reading past and present posts it's great knowing there are people that feel just like me! I have felt such comfort and friendship here, thanks to all!! Have a great day!

I am so happy that you received relief in yout neck and back. That is wonderful.

I am concerned about a 10 hour work shift. Like Chartreux said...please take breaks.

Let us know how you made out on your long shift.

I will pray for you

It is great when a med is working well...that being said, I am with the folks above....the meds will work as long as we are sensible (I sound like one of my friends who loves to tell me all the time I do too much...sorry...lol)
I really hope that you had a fantastic day at work tongue

Woo Hoo I made it:) Thanks for all the well wishes and support today! I took many mini breaks and did pretty well, the heat in the kitchen was ugly as it was over 100 today. Had to be careful not to get overheated. Sure couldn't do this everyday but it felt great getting it done today!

Came home, showered and took a 2 hour nap and feeling pretty good tonight. My hands and feet are still bothering me but otherwise I am good. Thanks again everyone!!!!

Huskergirl It's great that your patches are working so well and that you got thru that 10 hour shift at work, whew. Be careful and don't do too much or you'll pay for it later i'm afraid.

Take care

Whew  10 hour shifts, I regretting having 3 of my grandchildren overnight for 2 nights, cant imagine what made me think this was a good idea.
Good luck to you, so glad your meds are working for you, please dont overdue.  The price for overduing is to much pain.  Be careful, but good job
