I'm having a super hard time doing the Monday Morning Question because I don't feel well. So I am going to have to skip it this week.
Actually the problem is that I was given a strong muscle relaxant at the hospital last night and it takes 10 hours to wear off. Most of the past 10 hours I have just been sleeping. That's really why I can't come up with a Monday Morning Question. I keep falling asleep!
Let me tell you what the doctor at the hospital Emergency Room told me, while I'm still on here.
The problem is definitely fibromyalgia. He said he's never seen such a tight and spasming back. He gave me something called Flexeril. What it does is loosens your muscles, and gives them a chance to stop spasming then tightening back up to brace from the spasming. Which of course repeats the painful cycle.
Flexeril is wonderful stuff! The problem is it lasts for 10 hours, during which time you probably fall asleep. During most or all of the time. So if you have anywhere to go, well, that's out.
So if my entries are not frequent, you will know that I am in bed! But he did say I could space out the medicine some if I have appointments or meetings. So I will be awake some of the time and be on here some, LOL.
One thing that is good is my condition won't last too much longer, most likely. What brought it on was stopping my exercises when I got the pinched nerve. I could no longer do the fibro exercises and my body rebelled.
When I get back into my regular routine of exercising, the cramps should go away and I won't need the Flexeril anymore.
Another thing the doctor told me is I am severely dehydrated and I must drink all day. Now I wonder how that happened?
Okay, I think that summarizes everything. I am glad I will be getting better. Wow, I already feel better some, and with each new pill I take, it loosens my back more, helping me out. I am not saying that I am not in very severe pain, but I think I can make it for the two weeks it will take to get substantially better.
I am missing working on the computer already though. I just tried and tried to do computer work, and fell asleep repeatedly. I gave up trying to do a Monday Morning Question and delete email, when I woke up and found my head pounding against the keyboard. That is when I thought I should tell you all I am taking a break for awhile, LOL.
So if I am scarce for awhile, you'll know why. I will be back to post a subject for the JLand Photo Shoot though, because that is important. I will get Val to help me.
And I can't wait to come back in a few days and write about John's party. We took pictures too!
Okay, love you all,
