Year 2/Day 36

This morning I woke up in such pain that I immediately called the doctor and went in as soon as possible.

An hour or so later, Will and I are at Kroger picking up 3, yes three, prescriptions.

Because I’m in nursing school I’ll list a little about each drug:

Motrin 800mg – NSAID (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory) used to block the inflammatory process = decreasing swelling, pain, or fever

– I took this as soon as I got home, and iced my back for about an hour.  Really noticed some improvements.

Flexeril 10mg – muscle relaxer used to treat muscle spasms

– I have not taken yet because I had school tonight, and I’m now waiting for Will to get home since it’s a new drug for me.

Tramadol 50mg – analgesic used to relieve moderate pain = changes the way the brain responds to pain signals

– Again, have not taken yet due to school.  Although, I’m not sure if I’ll take it yet.  The Motrin seems to be helping a lot…so we’ll see.

I’m really hoping all this resolves in the next couple of days.  I’ve got a lot to do with school, work, and now moving.  I don’t have time to be hurt!

I hurt my back somehow and I’ve been in a lot of pain today.

Not. Fun.
