Well, I've lost 35 lbs in the last year so happy about that. I'd be lying if I said I feel better because I don't. However, I can walk fast some days and / or certain times of the day. That seems so contradictory because when my feet hit the floor in the a.m. I really need a cane to safely stand and walk to the bathroom. My feet don't work right and I can't keep my balance and those first few moves are unbearable.
Knowing that a normal life span for me would be about 82, and that for 31 more years I am going to wake up and feel excruciating pain regardless of meds, well it's a huge pill to swallow!
I was having horrible hot flashes, but the doc started me on Neurontin and I haven't had a hot flash since. It seems the Neurontin has also helped with the nerve pain.
Still largely homebound, but I do have some things I'm looking forward to. Like the mountain town camera club meeting. ;)
Having daily headaches. maybe if I use the neti pot it will kill the sinus infection and hopeful stop the headaches. (h/a)
They keep trying me on sleep meds and I've been allergic to all of them, so i'm back on Seroquel for sleep. What that means is that sometimes I only sleep an hour a night but it's a little better then nothing.
