Although I didn't have anything wildly adverse as such, I had started to feel such awful nausea and terrible constipation. Of course constipation causes nausea so hopefully in a couple of days that will right itself and I am back at the mo to one 25 mcg/hour patch. I had one week at 50 but for the last couple of days the nausea and drowsiness have been very much more noticeable. Then for the last two hours waves of it sweeping over me. I panic when I feel sick too. I just took one off which the GP said last week may have to happen. That is why he said to have 2 x 25 on Instead of one 50.
I have had a week on them on 50 - one on each arm - and has made some difference to the soft tissue pain which can be stabbing constantly even when not moving, but I have all the same awful pains when I try to move. I hope I can last it out without trying to go back to 50. I don't know how I am going to go on till I get Enbrel and it hopefully kicks in. A lot of sleeping if I can.
Silly question. Bought some Frankinsence/ Boswellin cream and used it on my knees last night and this aft. I know Boswellin is a powerful plant steroid as once took some tablets years ago - only time I have ever taken a herbal (and it got rid of my inflammation!) - and was told to stop by Rheumy nurse, as was already on Sulpha, but didn't think this cream was anything more than something which is soothing to the swollen knees. Any thoughts?That's what it said. I am sure it is Fentanyl/Constipation/Nausea as I know Fentanyl does that as I noticed it on 25 but not been too problematic. Semi Dried Figs are good natural remedies at the 25 level of Fentanyl. .
At least my dreams might stop being insane now! This afternoon I was dragging a post box to where my handbag was, so I could post letters!! They were all very panicky things like dogs chasing me. As if I could drag a post box! I had trouble earlier crumbling oxo cubes!! I am always arthritis free in my dreams. Agile and mobile. Does anyone else find that when they dream? That they are in their former state of mobility etc?
