Resting my hands/arms in the braces overnight has helped immensely. I no longer feel the pain in my right hand that I had last night. Great! Hopefully, I won’t overdo or redo whatever I did yesterday to cause that problem in the first place, so that I will be able to stitch tonight.

However, I must have slept funny last night because I woke up with a headache. *sigh* So, I took my morning dose of Neurontin, went to get in the shower and realized that I should probably try to nip the headache, so I took 2 Excedrin as well. While I was in the shower and washing my face, I noticed that the area in the hollow just below both cheekbones was a bit sore to the touch, so I took a dose of Dimetapp when I got out of the shower, as well.

Now, I feel pretty funky. My body is still sensitive to caffeine (which I find odd after all of these years of taking Excedrin), so I’m talking 90 miles a minute (I actually talked myself hoarse on the ride in to work) and my body feels “buzzed” from the caffeine and yet shaky and woozy from the Neurontin (and potentially the Dimetapp, as well), so I am really feeling strange right now. I think I need to make a custom smiley for that one… maybe one with spirals come out of the top of the head? 😉

Not sure I’ll have anything to report from the neurologist visit this afternoon, but if there is anything significant, I’ll let you know. And Phoebe’s vet visit is just the standard yearly DHPP shot and exam, so nothing to be concerned about. But thanks for the good wishes! She’s particularly soft and fluffy this season, so I’ll be sure to give her an extra snuggle before, during and after the vet visit.

    Wow, Jenna, what a mixed-up feeling that must be – buzzed and woozy at the same time!!
    Hope you were able to stop that headache before it took hold, and glad the vet and neuro visit are nothing serious. 🙂

    I get the same spaced feeling when I do caffeine and decongestents together…I feel like I’m on one of those airport speed walkways and everything else is standing still. 😉 Hope you feel better soon.
