Hello from NYC
So far it has been really worth the long hall flight
I have seen an amazing doctor in NYC
I am seeing him again on Tuesday - I will seek his permission before popping his name up.
He was lovely older man , hugged me when I left gave me his personal Mobile / cell number
He reached out during our session held my hand and said let’s GET YOU WELL !
No one has said that to me before .
He thinks my other symptoms are Lyme and has referred me to Dr Steven Phillips MD in Connecticut .
He gave me a script for buprenorphine
So far very interesting
I did a straight switch from 15 oxycodone slow acting and up to 3 x 5 mg Endone quick release daily and 10mg stillnox
It is a 2 mg sublingual wafer I broke it into 8 crumbs because I am a scaredy-cat. I took the first one over the period of 24 hours
I did not go to bed until after 3 am as I was taking notes sitting in a dry hotel bath so I would not wake my husband . That caused some serious pain ( just had to get it done for my doctors )
admitting I took a stillnox out of habit at 3.30AM I SHOULD NOT HAVE
I slept until 10.45 am ,when I woke up I was very relaxed my body was not contracted as it would normally be .
Day 2 broke into crumbs took less than 1 GRAM over 24 hour period my body was so relaxed in bed lovely floppy relaxed legs . I found myself sleeping as I did in my early 20s arms sprawled out , I looked like a baby in a cot and felt that way too. Took NO sleepers only other thing I am taking now is CBD oil capsules I bought here in NYC
I hope it continues- I still have appointment next week in Boston with Dr J Winkleman
