I'm not taking any meds yet. I feel I'm not at a pain level that I really need them. But because I have 6 to 8 bouts a day starting around 2am, I'm exhausted by the end of my day which ends around 6:30 each night. I'v been taking 2 tabs of Benadryl and 2 tabs of Excedrin PM to help me sleep through the night. Which it has indeed help me sleep through until I wake up each morning at 5 am. But.... My early morning bout which use to be at 2am is now starting at work at 6:15am and are up to an 8 level of pain now and last 3 hours, whereas before I was only at a level 6 or 7 and it would last for 2 hours. I don't know if I should give up my sleep or go back to the way things use to be? Or did I Have anything to do with this new change?
