Fall has always been my favorite season, with all the beautiful colors here in Chicago, but certainly, it is the toughest for my pain and fatigue. I've increased medication, just recently started on Neurontin, one at night and now I take two at night, per doctor's recommendation and I am finding I am sleeping much, much better. The back pain that use to wake me up during the night is not waking me, well, not until early morning.
Marlee, I understand what you are writing about
. In order for me to get anything done and I've always been a very active OVERachiever, I rely on my prescript
ion pain meds. Without them, I would have turned into a blob in a chair somewhere. It is what helps to keep me active and I truly believe that being active is the key to managing our fibro...that in addition to a good night's sleep.
