Me: on Ferris wheel 2012-09-09
Same as last night — I was able to sleep more-or-less comfortably for about five hours, and then I woke up in grit-your-teeth, whole-body-feels-hot pain. I predict I’ll be fine in 45min when the painkillers kick in; that’s what happened last night anyway. It’s one tiny little spot in my back, so maybe it’s a pinched nerve. Bleh.

On the bright side, I was breathing for those five hours of sleep. That’s a good thing.

Breathing? What's that? Oh, is that what happens in between the coughing?

Gonna be calling a doc anytime soon?

I'll actually suggest the chiropractor also; it may do some good. Also, if you can time your naprosyn so you take a dose just before bed, it *should* last all night.

Thanks; if it doesn’t get better soon, I’ll consider it. (I actually need to make a doctor’s appointment soon, anyway — my PCP tells me I have mild anemia and wants to talk to me about it. If I still hurt that much by then I’ll mention it to him and see about a referral to a chiropracter.)

I suspect, though, that it’s starting to get better. Today, after the serious pain at 5:00am and minor pain on my way to work, I’ve only had twinges.

Yeah, the problem was that yesterday what I took in the morning was already well on the way to wearing off by dinnertime when I saw you, so I took my next dose right after plumtreeblossom and I got home. It lasted about 8 or 10 hours, but that meant it wore off around 5. :-)

This morning I only took two, so I could take them every 8 hours. Hmmm, although, come to think of it, I only took two around 5:00am, and then I haven’t had any since, and still I’m doing OK. That’s encouraging! I’ll definitely have some before bed, though.
