my doc once told me that sometimes this dd just goes away. that gave me a glimmer of hope. however, i am just getting worse by the day. i was wondering if anyone is so bad they just cannot get out of bed. i feel like that daily, take lots of pain med. w/out them i WOULD be in bed. i don't want to sound maudlin or negative, just curious how bad this could actually get. sometimes i feel like i just couldn't get any worse and voila the next day...poof, worse. new symptom. latest is pretty bad nausea. maybe its the methadone. but crap, 6 and 6 1/2 a dozen etc. my latest flare-up has lasted 7 days. then my mind says "maybe you just have the flu". can anyone relate? take care.
