Talked with my rheumy on the phone this afternoon. There's nothing I can take for my pain that won't make me drowsy. It's because I'm on a benzodiazapine (tranquilizer) for the seizures I'm no longer having. It will take me one more year to taper off the benzo completely. It's that addictive to the body. I have to go really slow.....
So, extra strength Tylenol is all I can take.
I did receive the bone scan report via fax from her though. I need it to take to the foot doctor on Tuesday. Turns out I do have plantar fasciitis. And "a low-grade focus in the mid shaft of the right femur. Uncertain significance. Is the area painful?" That's what the report says. Weird eh... No, no pain in the mid region of my right femur. None at all. I'm always such a mystery!
Good thing is that my fibro pain has lessened this week. I'm on an extra 10mg of Amitriptyline which seems to have helped. That drug has always been a good fit for me.
Anyway, that's the update for now,
I can do anything through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I have learned in whatever state I am in,to be content. Phillipians 4:11-13
