Back Pain

After seeing a doctor for back pain and ruling our appendicitis, gall bladder and kidney problems, he sent me home with a prescription for extra strength ibuprofen and an anti-inflammatory.

This is the 3rd day taking the medications and although they seem to help, it’s hard to determine for sure.  The anti-inflammatory makes me sleepy.  The morning pill is fine but the 2nd pill I take not just relaxes the muscle but every other part of me also.  Nodding off, waking, nodding off, waking.  Yesterday I did not take the 3rd pill as I didn’t feel like the 1st and 2nd pill had worn off yet.

I wonder if the doctors take into affect one’s weight when doling out the many times one has to take the pills.

For now, I’m comfortable with the occasional dull ache.
