He tells me fantasies about a magician who has an "isolation tank" and does stunts by spending days in it. I'm jealous and wonder how much it costs for an hour in there.
- They're in Lake City. It's essentially a sensory deprivation tank where you get in and have dark silence while you're floating in warm water. Sounds like it might be nice to have an hour of utter silence with no sensory input.
I bet after yesterday, Craig could use a day in this tank. :) Poor guy, although, he kept me cracking up despite a terrible pain situation.
Yeah the one that I had earlier this year went on for 15 days. I was ready to kill. Then 8 hours or less after the shot it came back. I was full of win, or pain, or something like that..
What finally made it go away?
I had to wait till the next day to take anything else, took 3 imatrix the next day, 1 followed by 1 more an hour later, then 1 more in the evening. 2 the next day and it finally went away.
In combination with the hydrocodone that they gave me just so I could sleep at night.
Crap, I'm allergic to the imatrix. :( *sigh*
are you allergic to imitrex pills, shots, or both? i get horribly vomitty with the pills, and while the shots still make me nauseous, i don't actually throw up and it passes pretty quickly--usually within 10 minutes. i actually have a self-injector kit since i can't take the pills. just thought that if you'd only tried the pills you might want to give the shots a shot.
It's the drug itself. I have very low blood pressure and it makes me pass out.
No worries, it doesn't work anymore anyway..
i've been thinking about you and hoping relief comes soon!
I had a doozy for two weeks last year. It finally went away with a combination of alprazolam, percocet, a shot of toradol, phenergan, an ice pack on my head, and about 20 hours of sleep.
You have my empathy.
Crap. I've stopped working. I've slept. I've stopped reading or looking at ANYTHING. I'm at the end of my rope. :( I think it's hospital time today.
Let me know if you need me to take you. I can be there quicker than anyone else. *hugs* You poor thing. I hope it goes far far away soon. Although I'm with you on killing the birds.
Ha! I'd find my old cat cornered hiding from rabbitts as she is terrified of everythign, and Midnight is so dumb he would kill himself by eating plants that are toxic rather than hunting birds. He eats dust bunnies in our house.
:::huge ass hugs::: thankfully i haven't had one last more than a week so i can only relate so much, but wanted you to know i'm thinking about you.
*hugs* Thank you. I hope things are going well for you and you are feeling well. I know that even when things go super well it takes awhile to heal from having a baby.

Dear God. *hugs*
*hugs* I'm feeling a little bit better this second. I'm going to hold off as long as I can, but ultimately if I can't take it I'm going to the hospital. I think it's best to get another opinion.

You're probably already beyond the point where most people "just can't take it", my dear. Sheesh, I wish they could just put you under for a day and break the pain cycle. Please let me know if you need anything. This weekend I have plans with Bel and Angela and you are welcome, and of course we can come to you if you need us. Any plan can be changed if you need me.
