Sherrine: The Robaxin seems to be kicking in well. I feel like I'm starting to get used to it, and it seems a good 'fit' so far. It's prescribed for "One tablet twice a day as needed." I also take Neurontin, so I try to stagger the two by an hour or so--that seems to be working well.
I appreciate your sharing how many tablets you take. Yes! I think it's good to try less, or at least see how it goes. Some prescript
ions are so strong and a little goes a long way.
Thanks also for sharing about
the medication for the glaucoma (sorry you have that
). It sounds like you have it well under control, though, and it's good you see your ophthalmologist regularly.
Thanks for the Curamin and Curamed info, Lj. I didn't realize there were 2 so similar, even in name!
Ha--I was weeding yesterday for an hour and a half, stopping often to go get a drink of water. When I got in the house, my leg nerves were wacky and probably complaining. But things are good today. I should do more weeding, but it's raining.
How unusual your eye pressure reading is higher in a storm, but hey--fibro bodies--we just never know what they're doing, I guess.
Lendi: My stiffness got much worse a month or so ago. I posted on this above. It seems to me (just my thinking here) that the sciatic "uprise' I had started things rolling, but just a guess. Any chance you may have irritated your sciatic nerve somehow, by lifting or something?
My doctor thinks I 'whacked' mine from shoveling. I'm usually pretty careful, but do sometimes get a little carried away when I want to get something done. I've been resting on some ice off and on. It's gotten much better all around from when it started, but I suspect I still have something going on there, as my leg and feet nerves can get jumpy for reasons unknown.
