i was ready over the feeling guilty post and got wondering about how well each of us is getting medicated. i am sometimes able to feel almost totally pain free for part of a day----and sometimes i cannot ever get complete relief. i was wondering how many of you feel that you would be able to do a little more with your children or grandchildren if you were allowed to use either more pain medication at times, or maybe if you were allowed to use a stronger pain killer? sometimes it is a tricky balance for me----if i happen to judge wrong and get too much, i either feel loopy or sometimes just yucky----yet other times i can keep adding a little more about every half hour without improvement. at least when i get loopy, it usually only lasts about 30 minutes---and i try not to drive when i get that way.
the doc increased my norco by 10 more a month---but he kept the soma the same. the soma actually does me a little more good sometimes than if i were to take extra norco-----i think it is because it affects the central nervous system---and it also helps with my anxiety, OCD, and crying spells.
