Mental RLS triggers

So. I just learned that my RLS doesn't like reading about Alzheimer's Disease. Nor does it like reading about Narcicisstic Parents :lol: (a little too close to home I guess). It doesn't like boredom. It doesn't like anxiety. It doesn't like long flights or concerts... I think there was a post about ...

Re: Happy New Year! & checking in

Thanks all. Yes it is. Still a bit concerned as there are a few more hoops to jump through before I am allowed to start. There is a 2 part acceptance process. 1) They want to hire you (check!) 2) Your background is fully vetted and you are given the handshake. I am on step 2 maybe for another month ...

Re: Another dumb pharmacy trip

I have an update that falls under the "dumb pharmacy trip" category. I am now trying dilaudid instead of oxycodone... I still have oxycodone left on the rx but MD wanted to switch me. I think my costco only has one pharmacist! And it's always the same guy. I almost started cracking up when...

Re: Progress with my local doctor?

One of the most horrible things about doctors is that they have the power of documentation. They can make you sound like a real jerk in the medical record. I am sorry you (like so many of us!) are going through this. Can't recall if I posted it on here, but my new pcp at my first visit said "Pa...

Re: Progress with my local doctor?

I asked who I could speak with to "appeal" the policy decision that prohibits their doctors from prescribing an opioid for a chronic condition. I also explained that their failure to provide medical treatment for my condition was exposing me to an increased risk of a automobile accident, ...

Re: New med

Thanks guys. I emailed the doc. He said give it some more time if I can. I appreciate the 2 week guideline, I will try that. I already take trazodone but the opioid makes it not work for sleep. I do eventually fall asleep with the opioid but it takes so long and sometimes I think it has worn off by ...

New med

I was having problems alerting from oxycodone. I thought the dr was going to add a sleep med or something but instead he stopped that and changed me to 2-4 mg of dilaudid. On the dilaudid, I have cotton brain the next day which seems odd since it's supposed to be so short acting. I have fewer centra...

Re: Happy New Year! & checking in

Thanks all. I got the job!!! Social worker working with older adults. It will be a few months before I can start...healthcare credentialing process is lengthy. So relieved...my job situation the past 3 years has been tenuous and had horrible health coverage. Tenuous because job was full time permane...

Happy New Year! & checking in

Happy 2018, all! Wishing you the best of health and love this year. I am just checking in briefly...I am knee-deep in an employment transition, hoping a second interview goes well later this week. If not I don't have a lot else in the pipeline right now. Sleep wise, slight improvement...most days I ...

Re: Pending Opioid Withdrawal?

Interesting that mail order is not available to everyone since it is essentially required by the health insurance provided by my former employer, who has a large number of employees in both IL and CA. But I also admit to quite a bit of fear with my mail order access since CVS has recently bought th...

Re: Pending Opioid Withdrawal?

This is part of the reason why I have gone exclusively to a mail order pharmacy. And I have slowly developed a stash by getting them just a few days early each time. We can't get them via mail order in CA I don't think. Good for you re the stash! Apparently the mixup was the office person not respo...

Pending Opioid Withdrawal?

Well I really dislike these pharmacy rules of not refilling until 2 days before I'm due. Doesn't allow for any time for MD missing refill request etc. Pharmacy doesn't keep oxycodone in stock either. So I'm looking at going without for a few days. I'm hoping I haven't been on it long enough for with...

Thanks for the reminder about habits...it's so true!

Sunday and Monday I'm going to visit a friend in the Bay Area...that should help, and get away from the 'hood too.
