Well, I am finding out Gabapentin is not a wonder drug. It only really seems to seriously help me when I have stopped moving for the day. Which is actually a blessing if it just accomplishes that. At least I can lay down and not ache and feel like my breathing is all messed up.
But most definitely not in a good mood today. Depressed, aching everywhere, chest, ribs, back, digestion messed up, gerd or esophogeal spasm pain. Unfocused, unbalanced. Feel like I am going to just faint standing in the line at the supermarket. Heads going to explode and then I gotta clean that up. Finally got home. Took a Percocet, half a muscle relaxer, 600 milligrams of Gabapentin and 3 Ibuprofen. I figure this will either kill some of this mess and I will wake up and watch that new movie The day the earth stood still, or I will pass out and wake up latter and watch it.
Sorry, just been ticked all day at how erratic this condition is, so that's my vent. You can do the exact same thing everyday, take the exact same drugs and get a whole different response. Somedays its lower then your ability to focus past it, and somedays it just overwhelms it. Today was a OMG, and I have to move 9 hours from here next week and I am having a problem driving the 2 miles to the store and back.
I know the only way I am going to pull this off is take absolutely no drugs the night before for that drive other then Ibuprofen, drink coffee, use Nicotene lozenges to focus, so I can drive safely, and just suck it up and take two days to drive there.
Oh, I guess that is my vent being done now.
