I haven't been around for a while, but now I am off work for the summer so I will probably be on more often.
I went to see a pain management doctor last week because my primary doc felt I was on too much meds. Anyway, by the time I left the pain doc I had 3 new prescriptions to add to what I am already taking. She told me that for what I have I am not on too much medication and most likely need more. She prescribed Lyrica for pain and then two prescription vitamins to help with memory loss. I haven't started them yet because I am seeing the neuro on Wed of next week and want to wait and see what she says.
In the meantime I went for about a week without Plaquenil and then on Saturday I woke up and my hands were a mess. They were bright red and swollen and very sensitive to touch. When I touched the palms they felt like they were on fire and it was painful. I quick got my prescription for Plaquenil and within 24 hours they were better. Ithough it was really weird though. Has anyone else had that happen?
Anyway, I am enjoying my summer break. Sitting here cross stitiching a blanket for my soon to be born 4th grandson. Daughter in law had some pretty severe Braxton HIcks this morning. Thought we were going to meet Addison a little early, but now she seems fine.
Hope everyone is doing well.
