Finally my doctors are listening to me!!

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

My neurologist put me on a new med which is similar to the old one but increased the dose, thank you GOD!! And he's looking into getting me medical botox for my chronic migraines. It's extremely expensive but in most cases it eliminates migraines for 3-6 months! Now that sounds like a dream come true. I could finally have a life! Plus my lupus doctor added Tramadol to my pain control meds and my joints are feeling so much better. I had a horrible flare up for the last 2 weeks, I could barely move. My fibromyalgia flared up then too so I felt like a walking bruise. Happy to say that I'm feeling much better and to day I'm going to try to do the elliptical trainer for 20 minutes and a gentle speed, along with my classical stretch DVD and general stretching.

hope everyone has a emoticon day and emoticon for your continued support! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Glad that you are feeling better. Lupus can be a real pain and with fibro it makes it worse..

    Same to you. Don't overdo it just because you feel better. I do that all the time, with my bad knees and then I set myself up for pain for the next 2-3 days. Slow and steady is the way to go! emoticon
