Today started off at an 8. Later in the day I decided to see if I could walk through the pain. The walking was tough but I'm now at a level 6 and going to start cooking. I know that will knock it up a bit. I followed something LOLA_LALA suggested and now use a padded stool in the kitchen so I can alternate standing and sitting. This has helped tremendously.

started at 6 today but after walking part of the mall with my son I am now a 9.

Ritzibrown; I do not drive it would be to dangerous due to the pain pills, I had to go to the dr using the bus; it's a bit more challenging.

I empathize with you AZ_CAT_PERSON especially if you're driving. May the Dr help you and may you arrive home safe, sound and at a pain level that's manageable emoticon

Today started off a little high, 8, but I decided to focus on my critters and do chores as they fit in. I've managed to hold at a 7. Working up to going for a emoticon in the emoticon :D

I've been MIA - challenging week. I've been at a 10 this week down to 9 today. Little by little moving forward. Keeping grounded by walking or gardening has been of solace.

10+ for the second day in a row. fibromyalgia and lupus are acting up very badly. Insurance is dragging it's heels with deciding to allow me to go back on lyrica. It's been close to a month. Chronic headache and spent most of yesterday with a migraine. Not sleeping well. Constantly exhausted.

It is what it is, or is it?

I hope it stayed there, Sindia - if it didn't actually decrease. A 4 is more than enough to deal with... emoticon Mine ratcheted up to an unpleasant 8 late this afternoon, but that was after a lot of cooking and housework earlier in the day (well...at least for me). While it takes a great deal out of me, I remind myself that in my own case - given the nature of my own pain patterns - it will slacken off with rest. And it did! It also gets so much better with my hot shower at night, which helps me fall right to sleep... emoticon

It's only a 3 right now. The fortunate thing about my pain is that it varies throughout the day, and not just in response to medicine. I'm trying to look forward to the times when, just like right now, it's at a lower level. I'm glad for the fluctuations..

Hey there, Carol! emoticon

The asparagus is fantastic! I've been enjoying it almost every day, too - just love it baked for half an hour at 450į. I coat about a pound in 1 tsp. extra-virgin olive oil, spear by spear, then sprinkle with some Kernel Season's ranch-flavored salt and some garlic powder. This makes sort of a very light, tasty coating on the asparagus - love it! But you grow spinach?? MMMMmmmmm!!

I'm sorry your pain has gone from 6 to 8 - those are difficult levels to cope with... At one point this afternoon, my hip/leg pain was about a 7, but I got in my recliner and napped for about an hour. That put the level back to perhaps a 5 - much better! Glad I have a counter-level padded stool with a nice back on it for kitchen work - whew! Have a good day tomorrow...

Susan, you're welcome emoticon .
I too find a lie down helps the pain; sometimes the pain demands the lie down emoticon I'm at a consistent 6 today, which is manageable but wearing.
emoticon how was the spring asparagus? I'm planning on a row of asparagus this year. Need to pick the last of the spinach tonight. Numm!

Carol, thanks so much for your kind, empathetic words :) They're just like a painkiller without a medicine; they feel so wonderful and restorative emoticon

I know what you mean about the subjectivity of the pain scale. It's so frustrating, isn't it? And, I'd say that a 4 is the kind of nagging, persistent pain that is pretty relentless in demanding our attention. Thanks for your kind wishes and I wish you the same for a good, happy week ahead!

After doing my little chunk - and it is little, but I do a little each day - of housework, my pain was a "gripeworthy" (howzat for an adjective? ;) 8, but after an hour's nap, it's down to a 2! Remarkable what a recliner, an hour, and my favorite afghan can do in making things better. Dinner will make it better still emoticon I love spring asparagus!

Slow and steady Sindia. Treat your beautiful self with love emoticon

Susan, you are positive, supportive, empathetic and kind - to others and yourself. We're very fortunate you're a team mate. emoticon

Today's a good day for me, in spite of the rain; I'm at a 4. The pain scale is so subjective. Yesterday, DH & I were talking about some of my most intense moments and how they put the scale into a totally different reality each time. One never gets use to being in pain, regardless of the level. Oh well.

Wishing y'all a wonderful week filled with peace, harmony, laughter, and love!

Carol

Oooh, ouch, Sindia! How about a nice, restful evening with that leg elevated?

My right leg was around a 7 this afternoon, but some Tylenol and a nap seem to have helped, as has using a wheeled stool with back for cooking dinner tonight...

We keep trying, don't we? emoticon

Hope you're feeling better MISSA. Ask your doctor about signing up for the Lyrica discount card. Don't know if you have insurance, or what your deductible is if you do, but the savings for me when on Lyrica was substantial.

A 7! emoticon I'm so sorry you're having such a difficult set of pain sources right now, MISSA... The terrible thing about sinus-infection pain is that it's right there on the face, which is all too well supplied with nerve endings. So the experience I've had with the (rare) sinus infections I've had is that they make that whole part of my face feel tender and throbbing. I don't have fibro, but I hear it can be excruciating. And then the medicine snafu ... well, I hope the insurance approval for your Lyrica will come very soon.

I was in quite a bit of pain yesterday, as I had a long day and too much time driving (very painful with a twisted pelvis). So I took it very easy today, just cleaning a bathroom, and I feel like my old self again emoticon It's only about a 3 today.

Here's to your feeling better...

That's well stated, RITZI! A "day to day 'scientific' experiment between doing meds, doing, resting. I'm sorry to hear about your crash yesterday - when pain breaks through, it is beastly! I try to tell myself that my pain fluctuates, so that when it's more acute, I can look forward to some lessening...and that helps :)

Have a wonderful day today! emoticon

LOLA_LALA I understand completely. Managing chronic pain is a day to day "scientific" experiment between meds, doing, resting. The weather can be a great influence on the mix as well, for some of us.
Maintained at a level 5 again today but crashed emoticon after a busy morning. Took my meds with lunch so waking up wasn't too bad.
Here's to a better day for all tomorrow!

5 here, too. I'm trying to balance the timing of my x-strength Tylenol, nerve-pain med (gabapentin), and times of physical activity on my feet to allow for recovery from higher levels of pain - just something new I came up with. It seems to be helping.
