They warned me about the Neupogen bone pain

And let the bone pain begin! This pain is no joke from these Neupogen shots. My sternum, sacrum, iliac crests and skull are killing me this morning.

I have been taking Claritin to ward off this bone pain and it’s been doing a pretty good job for the first 5 days, but today it decided to rear its ugly head.

I took some Tylenol so hopefully it will ease up with a little time.

***UPDATE: I had to cave and take a Norco a few hours after shot #5. The pain was a good 8/10. Not fun but doable. Just keep moving forward!***

I completely face-planted on my cement steps going out to my garage.  My left leg decided it would not go up the steps, and I bit it hard.  I am surprisingly sore everywhere and have a big lump on my left shin.

So far, Gilenya is working – I have not had any relapses since starting it, but the damage that was done from my prior flairs hasn’t gotten much better.

Ouch… the pain

Neuropathic pain is absolutely miserable!  I can’t believe I got hit with it so hard today at nearly every point of my body.  It still hasn’t completely calmed down yet.  Maybe tomorrow will be a better day.

It’s like you roll yourself into a little ball to just try and find some comfortable position, which does not exist.  I have to call my neuro tomorrow because this is day 3 of on/off neuropathic pain with today being by far the worst.  Wonder if Gabapentin is something I may need to take – but the side effects of it suck 🙁 It’s like a no-win situation.
