So my PCP prescribed Modafinil (Provigil), for the narcoleptic fatigue/falling asleep thing, and so far so good. I've had no adverse side effects and I am more alert, with no zoning out or falling asleep episodes since Friday when I started taking it.
I am able to think more clearly, my coordination is better and overall, I feel more able to deal with the chronic neuropathic pain and pain from the spasms in my legs.
I am taking Tylenol for the surgical pain every six hours, but I know from past experience, that doesn't do anything for the pain in my nerves or from the spasms. The pain is still there, but because I'm not so dragged out, it is less of a bother.
Yey...I think that we've finally found something that actually works and didn't back fire!
If all goes well with this med. then my PCP said that we might be able to try something else for the pain when I see him this coming Friday for a post surgical check.
Who knows, I might be able to go see my folks for Christmas after all
With love, Erika
