UGH! I feel so horrible right now. It's just about 11:00 pm. I've been trying desperately to sleep for hours. Here's the thing. I take oxycontin for pain on a regular basis. The past week I've been having a pretty nasty flare and try as I might I just can't go without the oxycontin because of the agonizing pain. Well I had my morning dose early today and usually that's plenty for me to last through the entire day. But this evening at around 6pm the pain started coming back with a vengence. So I took one oxycontin to try to get it under control before it got ER bad. Now I'm feeling extremely nauseated, even after taking my Zofran. I'm kind of dizzy, certainly feel like I'm medicated and even though my body is exhausted, my mind feels like it's had a whole pot of coffee. It's not even helping the pain as much as it normally does! When I lay down I feel even worse. All I want to do is sleeeeeep. I stopped taking sleeping meds a while back. I just hate being on a zillion different medications. I have a bottle of Trazodone from a while back but I've never tried it. If anybody is up do you have any suggestions as to what I can try without meds to get to sleep? If I can't get to sleep within 2-3 hours I'm going to take the Trazodone. I feel that horribly sick right now. I just do not want to be awake to feel this. Any suggestions at all, I'm open minded! I've taken a relaxing aromatherapy bath, tried to read a book but I'm too dizzy to look at it for long, tried deep relaxing breathing but so far nothing is helping.
