I have an appointment the day after. My meds was modified slightly and I'm feeling a lot better than I was last two weeks flaring.
I'm going to get asked how are my meds for now......and how I've been coping lately.
I was doing good about 3 appointments ago, so about 3 weeks ago. I told her I was feeling great and my pain was very manageable. That same day after I honestly told her how I had felt, she changed my dosage on a need to need basis and refused to refill script even after I told her I'm doing a lot worse because I can't control the pain on a need to need basis. Some of you might understand that some pain killers are used as controlled, but once you flare up, it's too late to take the medication as it will not give you any relief when flaring. So after flaring the last two horrible weeks, she added some muscle relaxants in my meds which really had stopped me flaring and my muscle spasms seems controlled.
So in saying that, I've finally gotten out of my flare up and feeling more functional, I'm not sure how to put it to my GP that this is just nice. All meds are at the lowest dose and when flaring, I will only take the muscle relaxants. I didn't really like the feeling of being spaced out anyways. I run a business so I need to keep sharp most of the time.
At the moment, after weeks of muscle spasms, I do need the relaxants to give me the chance to stretch out my over tightened muscles. I'm giving myself about two weeks so I will take it once a day before my stretches. I'm just not sure what or how I can put it to my doctor that I'm fine. I don't want anything to change at this point. I don't want to lie about what I am going through because I'm not an addict, I've always been genuine and I want to keep it that way. Change is bad for me now as I have a lot on my plate in terms of work. I can't afford one day working and two days recovering. I need to be constant, I hope you all can give me some sort of non-manipulating advice on how I can be genuine and still make it a win situation for me.
Many thanks for hearing me out, have always appreciated the comfort you guys/gals have shown me.
