Now this is extremely
interesting to me. This morning I began sharing with my Better Half the joys I've discovered upon this board, and the wonderful education I receive. He reminded me that many, many, (MANY?)
years ago, to my amnesiac chagrin, I was
in fact prescribed Soma (as a sleep aid) and (...wait for it,...)....by the third dose I was waking him up with that familiar reaction of thrashing about
and whimpering from bilateral arm pain, headaches, swollen face and throat..., soooooo, it was then added to the list of d/c meds. (I knew
I kept him around for more reasons
than merely being quite fond
of the dear!) I completely forgot.
I think because I've tried what I feel are "so many"
medications, and so many
result in negative reactions, (that have been measured
as well as objectively observed
),...I lose track. My written lists of "what I take" and "what I'm allergic to" are so excessive and seemingly forever changing, (I'd need several bracelets to list them all)...but I am reminded,... I realize I'm in need of another update. He's helped me many times (he has a memory like a steel trap,...good thing, mine's become like a sieve).
However, I see my PCP on Tuesday and will bring this/these up again.
It never even occurred to me that my constant headaches MAY be related to my Flexoril. They put me on a teensy
dose starting a few weeks back, thinking that would help, and with this very rough week of last, took them, sparingly....anything for relief. And I've been having headaches galore. Didn't take any last night, and hmm,....no headaches this morning. Coincidence?
Thank you all for the informative discussions
, for sharing your experiences
, for giving me food for thought, and as I discovered, helping to jostle my memory as I move forward. In four days (Thursday, technically is the last day here, and five days, Friday, is the first day of official NH home residence in NH), I've GOT
to get all these lists organized and update.
You guys are my virtual best buddies, my fellow CP'ers,....and still hoping to meet in person.
Best regards, and exceedingly numerous thank-you's,
