Minimal Nerve Pain

I had very little nerve pain to deal with this weekend!

That was a huge relief.

I had a little bit when we were driving home from my Healing Touch appointment, so I stretched out across the back seat in Nick and Sharon's car, and it went away.

I felt great, otherwise, after my HT appointment.

Actually, I felt so good on Saturday that I decided to try again to go from 10mg pills to 5mg pills.

If you remember, I tried this two weeks ago. It didn't work out then, and it didn't work out this time either.

I got through the day okay, but then woke up in the middle of the night in incredible pain. Like I hit a wall of pain.

I went back to the 10mg pills. But today was awful because it was like I had to play catch up. Even though I was back at the right dose, I was in pain for most of the day.

I expect to wake up tomorrow in much better shape. And I will not mess with the pain meds again.

When I am in pain, all I want to do is lie still and not make it worse. I don't want to get up and move around at all.

Of course, getting up and moving around is exactly what I need to do to get better.

So messing with the painkillers is counter productive.

Hi Karen,
Sorry to hear about the nerve pain :(. Sounds like the best thing you can do for now is just keep up with the pain medication. I certainly understand though not wanting to take more than you need. Hang in there and be patient and you'll be done with it soon enough.
I was happy to see in your other post that your feet aren't giant anymore :) Now you can wear cute shoes.
Hope all is going well. I think of you often and hope to see you soon.
Take care.

Dumb nerve pain, hopefully it will go away soon! Nerve pain is the worse pain of all, I would rather have a broken bone! Glad it is becoming "minimal". One day you'll think, ummm I am not in any pain, that will be awesome!
Love you lots and lots!
