Now I can understand what the fibro article means when it said flexeril up to 40 mg po qhs.
To me, means I can try ONE more of the little pills before bed.
Trying to avoid opening the jack daniels bottle for pain relief,
[cause would probably make me sick!]
And I don't know if I will get into a place easily, esp since:
1) my GP thinks I will be better in a week [here's hoping!] and therefore couldn't get a referral
2) my physio thinks I will be better in 3 wks [that sounds okay too]
3) having trouble finding a physiatrist taking new patients on OHIP.
4) same with good pain or physio clinics -- would have to wait a week or two to get into a mostly-covered OHIP clinic, and because they don't get paid much they don't spend much time with you.
I am thinking of going private, but my funds are getting so depleted...and I think...what if my dr is right? what if hurts like heck now but will be okay in a week? then I think...what if he doesn't know what he's talking about???
So many decisions to make. Today do I try to go downtown and go through the trauma of trying another vitamin injection for the pain and muscle contractions? do i try to see another mD for 2nd opinion and referral to a physiatrist? do i book an appointment at another physio clinic for 2nd opinion? look into a private clinic and maybe one with a whirlpool? Go see a new and better chiropractor [big bucks]? Go for massage therapy today or asap? go back to my GP and tell him how meds are only helping a little?
and I haven't even had breakfast yet...
ahhhhhhhh such is life with CFS and new problems and financial concerns...
Thanks for your input.
