It took a lot of effort to get to the pharmacy today...


... and yet I forgot to bring my brain. It is not too difficult to remember my essential medications, given I was out of both my triptans and painkillers and had a migraine... so that there was incentive to go to the pharmacy.  I definitely remembered to get them.  However, I ran out of my script for my nausea med awhile back and hadn't filled it. Reason being the nausea I was getting which was indeed horrific was caused by the severe vertigo so I was taking the SERC and then when that was hurting my stomach I just resorted to motion sickness pills to just help me keep food down. I don't like to take the anti-nausea pills too often because they make me... edgy and frankly uncomfortable in my skin. So I just don't unless necessary, but with the vertigo being as it is and not necessarily wanting to take the SERC all the time either I want to have it on hand.  Unfortunately i forgot the name of it... which is really easy to do when it isn't one of the essential, necessary meds and its name is Insane. I think it starts with an M.  And that is what I said. Did I mention I had a migraine?  Anyway, when I got home and unloaded my pills I realized those were not the right ones because I remember what they look like.  I'm not entirely sure what I did get, given the list of medications I have on record is also insane but I think it was the med my doc put me on for a time to help my digestive system recover from the antinflamatories my previous doctor insisted were fine. I needed to take them for some time as I recall and they are still on file because I may need to take them again if my digestive system acts up... I certainly can't touch antinflamatories anymore or aspirin for that matter.  Point being... got the wrong pills.  And it is just insane how many you end up having on file for all this crap... not just for your actual condition; the necessary ones and the occasion ones, but also for the things that come up like horrible side effects that need to be treated after you're taken off something. I mean the fun just doesn't end.

Signs the pain is getting the best of you

100 Symptoms of Fibromyalgia

There was a site that had this and I had linked to it on Tumblr but it is gone. So I had to hunt down someone who found my post and posted the whole thing in a forum. Anyway it is around but I'm posting it here so I will not have to hunt it down to reference it. Now we all know the major symptoms are the wide-spread pain, but our pain isn't just muscle pain... it can be nerve types of pain as well, and the fatigue and the insomnia. And even among symptoms there are some far more frequent than others, but it should be said we have categories... like the cognitive dysfunction, which is a broad one that has more than one symptom and we often just say fibrofog. The insomnia... more than one sleeping disorder. So the list is interesting.




GENERAL
__ Fatigue, made worse by physical exertion or stress
__ Activity level decreased to less than 50% of pre-illness activity level
__ Recurrent flu-like illness
__ Sore throat

When I say I am good

When people ask me how I am feeling 99% of the time I am lying. I often say 'not bad', because I feel it is slightly more honest than 'good' or 'fine'. Got sick of fine. Anyway, I lie for many reasons. 



I'm having a good pain day: They happen and I'll say that I'm good, fine, not bad. I even feel like I can accomplish great things... in moderation. In which case, relatively speaking, for Me I am not actually lying. This is a Good pain day, it is Not Bad for me and I am Fine with it. I just don't want to explain: I just don't want to explain how crappy I feel and in which way I mean. Because I am tired of it. I just want to deal with it, without having to discuss it, mention it or have any sympathy expressed about it. Because it can be complicated. It may be a migraine with specific symptoms. Maybe it is a FM flare though. Or both. And then I have to explain what it is because most people think my migraines are the main issue but I could be FM…
