Pain in the Neck


Had it all night, in my sleep. I mean that I would wake up periodically and feel this intense, awful pain and get groggily upset and toss and turn a bit and then drift off again. Repeat all night. Did not sleep well. Duh. Got up finally at 9 and took two 50 mg Tramadol and 1200 mg Daypro with a can of Vanilla Coke Zero and four Oreos. Coated neck, jaw, and forehead with Extra Strength Flexall. Crawled into very hot bath and stayed there two hours, lying flat on my back so that my neck and jaw could be in the water. Head improved from 8 down to 3-4, which is a level I can live with. Unfortunately, now that I'm out of the bath and upright, I sense that it wants to ramp up again. Can take more Tramadol @ 3, but it's not a good sign that the full dose is only lasting half the time it's supposed to. Fuck, why won't someone prescribe something that actually makes it not hurt at all? Oh, that's right -- the only things that are likely to work are Big Bad Drugs and It's Just a Headache.
