I read about the water and drank like a fish yesterday...at around 11pm i felt it coming on and took a bayer PM (with my usual cocktail of prednisone and verapimil and took a hot shower. The hot showers and and bayer were working by themselves about 3 weeks ago before my pain started to increase and i had to get more help..but last night i caught the pain real early and my wife realized that i had given up on the showers...she reminded me and i jumped in..took a long one and stayed there til the pm part of the bayer kicked in and my pain went from a 3 or 4 before the shower to that little nag behind the eye right after..i was able to lay down...fell asleep and woke a 3 or so...the pain was about a 5 or 6 pretty intense but instead of getting up and pacing i decided to try and deal with it...i usually will only lay there for a minute or 2 but i was focused on this and wanted to see what would happen(i know a lucid moment yeah sure)
but in about 5 or 10 minutes of pretty good pain..it passed and i actually went back to sleep...
who knows? maybe this cycle is coming to a close...man i hope so this prednisone is making living with me a living hell for my family
