im going to try no pain meds today. I want to see how much I really need them. I do this every now and then because I always feel I take them when maybe I don't need to. So let's see how it goes.

well how did it go... my doc said I don't take enough of my meds and really chewed me out when I told her I was still in pain. I just cant bring myself to medicate as much as they want me too or I would be in a coma or zombie state all the time.. I really want to function better but cant see how that is possible with the choice of being medicated or unable to think because of pain and brain fog. It really is crazy this disorder. Darned if you do darned if you don't

Pain is best controlled by taking the medication on a regular schedule instead of waiting for the pain to start. After the pain starts, it takes more medication to make it stop.

Flagem333, most drugs that work on the central nervous system cause drowsiness initially. If you just persevere and stay on these drugs, it usually abates within a couple of weeks and you will feel normal.
