Meds Sick Sleep
Hope everyone is as well as can be expected
I am just going to write a wee blog to fill in what has been happening recently with symptoms side effects and life in general so all boring stuff as per usual some or all of you will say LOL.
I started a new drug just a few weeks ago called DULOXETINE 60mg this was to replace my AMITRIPTYLINE 50mg, I had to do this as it seems with a lot of medication on with CRPS is trial and error. When i start any new medication i always seem to suffer from nearly every side effect listed with it and the Duloxetine was certainly no different. From upset tummy to sickness and flu like symptoms i had it all, but a sickness tablet from the my GP started to put me on the straight and narrow sort of. The side effects are horrendous and i must suffer at least one from every bit of medication i take and some of them are extreme.
Any way apart from that i am finally getting some sleep and are very grateful for it. Sleep is a great thing to anyone but when your suffering Chronic Pain its even sweeter i think as all day i am constantly fighting my pain and suffering from it and it makes you really tired. Even from the medication i am always drowsy( was going to say dozy but some people would have thought i was that all the time before this HAAAAAHAA) but although I’m drowsy it never makes a good night sleep or any sleep a certainty and I’m sure many of you fellow sufferers can confirm that for me.
One thing i thought at the start of this was i was the only person in the world with this….well over the past 15months since first diagnosed I’m meeting new people daily. Through online forums and social media i speak to people who have this horrible condition and the support i was given at the start and anytime i go to the pages its great, i also like to help people who are maybe having a bad day or are just diagnosed with it as it is scary. Its OK to say oh i am going to be in pain for the rest of my life but with that pain comes a lot of other problems mentally and physically too so please keep that in mind when reading my blogs or anyone else who has this condition(i am not saying your ignorant)
Thanks for taking time to read my small blog today its much appreciated and im thankful for the continued support.
I am sorry for the poor English i do try my hardest but cmon give me a break LOL.
