I haven't taken pain meds since early this morning, either, which is another good sign. The tiredness from the meds, though, that keeps going after the meds have worn off, so I'm still groggy and a little sleepy. Like I said before, I can't imagine why people LIKE being on Vicodin and muscle relaxers and drugs like that, because all it does for me is make me feel like I'm in a giant fog, which added to my normal ADD brain, is definitely NOT a happy happy fun space. Not to mention the vague nausea Vicodin gives me. :/
I'm not getting my hopes up until I see what happens after an entire night of lying in pretty much one position. I really think moving around helps, so I keep getting up and walking around. I even managed to pick up a couple of things (which didn't change the fact that my house is disgustingly dirty and should be condemned, but still).
Phone update: Still gone. I'm thinking that this time I'll have to get another one, at which point my old one will likely turn up, such is the way of my life.
Still planning on getting an MRI (because feeling better doesn't mean the problem that caused the symptoms in the first place is gone) but it doesn't feel so urgent right now. Besides, I can't find a pay phone to call my neurologist. The one outside Market Basket doesn't seem to be there anymore, and I can't find one anywhere else. They used to be a dime a dozen, but now they're turning into relics of another era. Bleh.
