Day 6

Jan 20, 2009 - 0 comments

I'm really dragging butt!  I've only had one or two some what good days since I've been totally off of the Tram.  I'm so annoyed at how random it is that on my really bad days, my mind starts telling me that I was better on the Tramadol than I am off.  Right now I feel like I have nothing to look forward to without the thought of having some relief of my pain issues when they flare up.  I know, I know...my pain issues are so much better than they were before, BUT I am so tired all of the time.  I used to just take some Tramadol when I felt like this and it would at least help me get through the worst parts of my day.  

Tonight my legs are KILLING me!  I've done all of my usual tricks to settle them down, but nothing seems to be helping.  I'm almost sure I'm going to have to go sit in a hot bath soon in order to get any sleep.  They didn't hurt all day until this evening, so I guess I'm lucky there.

Yesterday was a depressing day.  I just never know how my mood is going to be.  One minute I'm fine and the next I feel like I"m going to kill over.  Not really pain, just fatigue and depression.  Today I was able to snap out of it pretty well and get lots of my work done, but tonight the leg pain is the biggest issue.

So as it stands on Day 6 of Tramadol Free Living, my major complaints are:

Let pain, restless legs that hurt really bad
Headache off and on
Low energy
Some sneezing but that seems to be getting better
Still cold at times through out the day
Sleeping seems to be hit or miss

Well, I'm off to get in the bath tub to try to get my legs to settle down.  More tomorrow!
