Wow...meds that work?!!!!!

So we finally got me on Celebrex, which made an instant impact on improving my shoulder pain! Yea!....we've actually discovered that my problem is in my neck and not my shoulder, who knew? I in fact am having trouble with my c5 and c7 vertebrae. I had an MRI done last week and will see my doctor on Thursday. To my untrained eye the results of the MRI look bad, but I'm hoping that my doc doesn't see it that way...ick.

But since the meds are working, I'm hoping to be back up and running with my blogs. I tooks some great pics this weekend when we were out camping and will try to post them in the next couple of days.

As for my fibro? It's been up and down. It was funny, cuz when I was taking the heavy duty narcotics, I was feeling pretty good as far as the fms the narcotic haze it never dawned on me, that it was actually the narc's doing their job...lmao...sometimes I'm a little slow! One of the side effects of oxycotin is that it worsens restless leg syndrome, from which I do NOT repeat NOT want to do that again. I've never had so many long nights of no sleep in a row...not to mention pacing around the house so I wouldn't go crazy with my legs...keeps me from wanting to be addicted that's for now I'm in wait and see mode and just enjoying (if you can say that) only living with fibro and not my shoulder pain too. How weird life is!

I'll keep you posted on my doc appt. hope everyone is well! It sure feels nice to be back online!!!!

So obviously, I'm still struggling with my shoulder. I totally hate not being able to blog...but sitting and typing is very painful. I had a steroid shot last week and I'm still waiting for it to kick in...I'm hoping that will be soon.

I feel like I'm really losing my momentum, with the blogs, and my health and my life in general. This is so damn frustrating!!!! I am soooo tired of hurting, and being in a fog due to the narcs and not sleeping crap crap crap!

sigh, what doesn't kill us will make us stronger, right?????? I sure hope so!

I will be on as soon as possible! please please keep tuning in!
