After a day full of drugs: a (second) 500mg I.V. of Depacon coupled with a 60mg I.M. shot of Toradol and a 12.5mg dose of Phenergan to top it off; I begin to feel a little better.
This morning was the morning to increase my Topamax to 50mg per day. And, though I awoke with an instant pain of around a five on a ten-point scale, it is now 3 hours later and the pain has tapered down to a persistant and throbbing – but dull – 2.5.
While this could very well be the result of my morning cup of tea – caffeine has some instant (though fleeting) pain relieving effects – I’m hopeful.
