Sug, The weather's been driving me nuts too! And it's just my opinion but you have nothing to feel guilty for. We are all responsible for ourselves and if you find some relief with meds, I say more power to ya!....with or without the almighty "ok" from the medical gods. Sorry, just my opinion. I loo...

Got my blood work results today.

I got my blood work back today. I'm extremely anemic. My Ferritin level is 2.6. I was quite surprised because I was on iron therapy, right after my miscarriage, a few months back. Another strange thing is my B12 results. My doc says that they should be lower than they are, considering the very low f...

Becat,

It's wonderful to hear you're still doing so well. Please keep updating, like you have been. It's so important for people to know when someone is finding relief. It gives us all hope.

Always adoring you! :-)

Becat, I can't tell you how happy I am that you are finding some relief. I know it's been a mental and emotional rollercoaster for you, trying to decide whether or not to give the narcotics another chance. The Percodan is doing what is made to do and that's wonderful. I wish someone would create a l...

Re: The gibberish on the chart...

Hi, Becat. Ironic that you brought this up.I am also a little leary about what might be written on a chart with a doctor I'm about to change. I think that the doctor (who used to trust my gut feelings a lot and encourage me to share those and make suggestions) has suddenly decided that my gut is no...

Partial refills without a Rx

I ran out of Mirapex AND Temazepam. I wasn't concerned about the Temazepam because the bottle says I have 2 refills left. So I sent hubby to refill it. Silly me. I thought 2 refills meant 2 refills. Noooooooo....my insurance is still requiring what is called a "prior authorization" from my Dr. befor...

Hi Brightventure, A couple of thoughts and questions. How long were you taking Mirapex and Klonpin? What were the dosages? You mentioned not finding a newsgroup with information on PLMS/PLMD. There is a newsgroup you can access through google. It's alt.support.sleep-disorder . You can read and post ...

Sole, you tell me how you may slip your sense of humor into an envelope and I'll figure out how to package up my pain control empiricism. :P

Hi Lyndarae, It's so good to hear from you and to hear that things are coming together. What an admirable thing you are doing, working with those boys. Concerning the Ultram. Who's to know if you take your one dose during the day, instead of at night? If your pain is during the day....take it during...

Lithium vs. Anti-depressants

Yes, I know when most people hear the word "Lithium," they think crazy but Lithium is quite often used, in small doses, as a mild mood stabilizer. I don't know why I haven't mentioned it before, with all of the anti-depressant talk. After I took Paxil, with success, it was a number of years before i...

Jan,

Thanks a bunch for posting those. I'm not sure what it is but I'm watching it...and drinking plenty of God water! :-) I'm sure it's nothing a little cranberry juice won't fix.

Sleep beckons and I'm a harkenin'. Hope you're resting soundly.

Hugs!
