So... Yesterday I worked from home, while fighting this head pain with lots of ibuprofen. Ended up emailing my doctor about it. While waiting for a reply, I discovered we still have a small supply of oxycodone left. Doctor ended up prescribing nortriptyline. Went to bed early, taking both.
And couldn't sleep. I got maybe an hour or two in almost twelve hours of trying. Took a sick day today. Loree suggested I try a professional massage; see if that can work it out. It helped, briefly, but the pain returned.
So, I've been interspersing oxycodone with ibuprofen, so I don't use too much of either, and waiting for a reasonable bedtime to take more nortriptyline. A dose of drugs is usually working for three or four hours now.
And it just became worrying. Around 8, it was getting bad again so I took some more oxycodone. At 930, it was still hurting, and getting worse, so I took ibu. Loree wondered aloud if perhaps it is dental. I am now resisting the urge to call Dr Tarr and ask if he can see me tonight.
We'll see if the extra drugs help.
