Yeah while I have no pain today (I have a freakishly unusually high pain tolerance too...like pain doesn't really "register" in my brain unless it's extreme. For example like I have broken my arm and foot before on separate occasions and I have used them relatively normally for like even weeks until my parents forced me to "go to the doctor" and get X-Rays), Lyrica (medicine) is like impairing both my short and long term memory and making me sleepy. I also think my other disease, chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (which is distinct from diabetes-related garbage by the fact that it causes noticable progressive muscle weakness which would be found in a neurological exam), is flaring up, as it tends to with heat, cause I feel "weaker" (I'm not absolutely sure though) and I am getting abnormal nerve sensations, like "cooling" in my feet, so I'm not sure yet if I should contact my neurologist and rheumatologist. Also, my heart rate when I exert myself is ridiculously high today too but maybe I'm not hydrating myself or something. When I was just standing up and it was like 156 beats per minute. To top it off, I'm out of tincture of opium, for a dehydrating GI problem, and my GI doctor who writes the prescription is out of the office. The hospital that I see her at is a cancer hospital so her nurse is trying to find a doctor with the "right prescription pad", as it is a very controlled substance and the doctors at the GI center don't usually have that type of prescription pad. Additionally her nurse practitioner told me to take Immodium, which doesn't do
**** for my GI problem. Lomotil (when I take "double the recommended dose", as my GI doctor has written the prescription before) kind of works and I'm out of that.
