Day 2 Duragesic
Did not go to work today - tried driving but my coordination was not good. I did not feel right driving 45 miles when I was having a hard time driving just down the road. Then I slept for several hours, waking up with The Headache hurting quite a bit this evening.
I am quite nauseous. I am not vomitting which is a plus, but wondering if it is the duragesic building up in my system. I tried taking phenergan and a couple of tylenol and changing the programs on my occipital stimulator to help with the nausea and The Headache. The Legs and the pelvic pain is a little better under control which is a plus, but kinda hard this evening to think about eating anything. Glad the pills are staying down!
The shortness of breath is gone, so I guess my PCP was correct - it was from the systemic issues that come from being in severe pain. Just not sure how I am ever going to be able to balance The Headache against pain relief for nerve pain and stomach pain. Wishing life was just a tad bit less complicated.
I will try again tomorrow to get around and get myself to work. Hoping this calms down tonight, the nausea is a little better since taking the phenergan but The Headache is not cooperating. I'm ready for this merrygoround to stop and I can get on with my life.
